Staffies Fred and Ginger © RSPCACelebrities, judges and dancers of Strictly Come Dancing lend a helping hand to find Staffies Fred and Ginger a forever home.

Stars of Strictly Come Dancing have helped to put a spring in the step of two abandoned Staffies after they made Twitter appeals to help find them a new home.


Helping hand from Strictly stars

Reigning dance floor champion Abbey Clancy was among the stars to send out tweets encouraging a new owner to come forward for Fred and Ginger – the two lovable staffies named after the iconic Hollywood dance partners Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.

Show favourites – judge Bruno Tonioli and dancers Brendan Cole, Kristina Rihanoff, Kevin Clifton, Karen Hauer and Flavia Cacace – were also among the stars to help highlight the plight of the two-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terriers who are currently at RSPCA Millbrook in Chobham, Surrey.


Delighted to receive celebrity support

RSPCA animal care assistant Sarah Piggott said:

“We are so grateful when people show their support. Fred and Ginger have had a rough time and really deserve a special home to call their own so any kind of help we can get to let people know they are here is really appreciated.


“They may not be as graceful as their namesakes but they are the perfect partnership. They have such lovely personalities, are full of fun and love to play tug together.


“They came in to us after they were abandoned by their owner and we think they are brother and sister.


“When they are apart Fred just pines for Ginger. He adores her and will start crying until she is back with him.


“We would love to find a new home for Fred and Ginger together. They are so devoted to each other it would be heartbreaking to split them up.”
