Teisha is desperately searching for a new family to take her in after losing the last member of her own family.

The 10-year-old Staffordshire bull terrier (pictured right) arrived at the RSPCA’s Bridlington, Driffield & District branch in July 2014 with her brother, Bracken.


They were taken in by the charity after their former owner, who was working increasingly long hours, could no longer give them the care they needed.


“Teisha and Bracken were spending most of their time alone, shut in the back yard,” said Sue Preston, rehoming coordinator for the branch.


The siblings (pictured below) settled into life well in kennels and, after a life spent side-by-side, were inseparable. Staff advertised the duo and searched for a home for them both, but no one showed any interest in the pair.

“This left Teisha all alone for the first time in her life,” Sue added. “Despite having lived with Bracken for her whole life, Teisha actually began to adapt to life without him.


“She started to come out of her shell and began interacting more with people.


“Teisha is a loving dog who enjoys attention and cuddles from anyone and everyone she meets.”


She is a calm, friendly girl – possibly due to her age – and needs a quiet, adult-only retirement home where she will be the only dog and can live out her life in a relaxing environment.


Teisha would benefit from a routine lifestyle in her new home where she can receive the full attention of her new owner and enjoy some comfort for her remaining years.
