Toyah is still looking for a paw-fect home

By Kelly Wickham


A German Shepherd is still searching for her forever home after being at a rescue centre for around ten months.


The RSPCA is desperately trying to find a forever home for Toyah – who is sadly the longest stay dog at the RSPCA’s Mount Noddy’s Animal Centre in Chichester after she arrived in April.


Five-year-old German Shepherd Toyah came to the centre back in April, 2019, after her owner was no longer able to cope, and the search began to find her a new family.


But despite her loving and clever personality, Toyah has been overlooked time and time again by potential adopters.


She is described by the team as a special girl and will need a very special home, but staff are hoping that there is the right family out there for her.


Susan Botherway, animal centre manager, said: “Toyah has just won over the hearts of everyone at the centre and we really don’t know why it’s taking this long for her to find a new family.


“It’s sad to think that while lots of dogs have come and gone at the centre, poor Toyah still remains.


“She is the most beautiful, affectionate intelligent, comical and playful girl. She is energetic, and is looking for a calm and quiet household in a semi-rural location, with experienced German


Shepherd owners who understand her training requirements and the breed.


“Toyah has struggled a little with kennels, and she does have some insecurities and can be unsure of meeting new people so adopters will need to be prepared to spend time working with the centre when getting to know her, and will need to put some simple measures in place in the home when expecting visitors.”
