Five year old Orion wants to live life to the full in a home of her own. Orion daffs

An abandoned German Shepherd who has been overlooked time and time again is looking for a loving new home.

Orion, who is approximately five years old, is full of energy and wants to live her life to the full, despite her heart condition which was only detected after she came into the RSPCA’s care.

She arrived at the RSPCA’s Bryn-y-Maen animal centre in January, with her son, after being abandoned. With a gorgeous personality being loyal, obedient and energetic staff and volunteers at the centre were devastated to learn about her heart condition.

Although Orion isn’t on any medication at the moment and isn’t displaying symptoms, the heart condition can become serious and it isn’t possible to predict what treatment she may need in the future.

Victoria Williams, RSPCA Bryn-y-Maen Centre Manager, said: “Orion is a gorgeous dog with a truly fantastic personality and just wants to spend her days running around and playing. She has basic training and is very responsive but is eager to learn more.

“Knowing that her life will be limited by this condition, it is heartbreaking to think that she’s spending it in kennels and we really do not want her to stay with us any longer than is necessary – she really needs someone special to let her live her life to the full.”

RSPCA Bryn-y-Maen (Upper Colwyn Bay, LL28 5EJ)  is open 11am-4pm everyday except Wednesday. You can contact the centre on 0300 123 0745 and is found just off the B5114 Llanwrst Road, a short drive from the A55. For more information visit
