After a life of neglect and cruelty, Mercy the Staffordshire bull terrier cross is looking for a caring new home.
Sheffield RSPCA is currently looking after the seven-year-old bitch and is seeking owners who would be willing to take her in.
A spokesman for the animal charity explained: “Magnificent Mercy came into RSPCA care due to cruelty and neglect.
“She has been staying with the Blackpool branch for a while but has now come to South Yorkshire to try and find her perfect home.
“This amazing girl has had a difficult time and is ready for a new life of fun, love and adventure.”
They added: “Mercy has lots of energy and she is exceptionally intelligent, she is looking for a home with new owners happy to invest time in her training and who would enjoy an active and fun lifestyle with her.
“She adores tennis balls and pretty much toys in general - they are her absolute favourite thing.
“Mercy is looking for a home where she is going to be the only pet in the household as she prefers to have all her resources and owner’s attention to herself.
“We are working on building her confidence around dogs, as she is currently a little worried by them.”
The charity is looking for a home for Mercy where any children are aged 14 years and over, and who would be willing to participate in her training and care.
“Mercy needs someone who will give her their full attention, love, and all the home comforts she could ever need,” they added.
“Can you offer this gorgeous Staffie cross the home of her dreams?”
