Dora was re-registered for adoption at the Macclesfield, South East Cheshire and Buxton branch of the RSPCA after spending around four years at their home – she began fighting with her owner’s original dog
She was rescued from an abusive home and placed with owners who couldn’t do enough for her – but has sadly ended up back under the care of the RSPCA.
Mixed breed Dora was re-registered for adoption with the RSPCA after spending nearly four years in her home because she began fighting with her owner’s original dog and other dogs on walks.
Though she left the charity’s Macclesfield, South East Cheshire and Buxton Branch as a pup who “has been friendly with all the dogs she’s met,” her personality change now means she’ll need to be relocated to a pet-free home.
A statement read: “When Dora first came to us in 2017, she was six months old.
“She was removed from the property along with other animals after reports and video footage of regular dog beatings were sent to the RSPCA.

“The perpetrators were prosecuted and received a prison sentence.
“We are sad to announce that Dora is now looking for a new home since her adoption in 2017.
“She was always well socialized, originally raised with two dogs and was friendly with all the dogs she met.
“However, over time after the adoption, the relationship with the resident dog and the dogs that travel has gone downhill.
“She has fought a few times with the other dog in the home and as the dog is much older and stressed the decision was made that Dora would be the only dog to have a new home.”
But as the RSPCA branch does not have space to accommodate her at this time, Dora will live with her family for almost four years until a new owner comes forward.
Dora has been described as a “very clingy girl” who loves to sit near her owners and bend over for excitement. She loves playtime and can entertain herself with a ball or rope for hours.
The statement continued: “She needs an adult home with experience and knowledge but no other pets.
“A quiet rural home away from city and residential streets where she can relax with walks and just have fun.
“She can be suspicious of strangers in the house so a potential new owner would need to visit her a couple of times.
“She’s such a lovely dog, she just needs all the attention for herself and to be number one.
“We have two reports from a behaviorist who evaluated Dora that we will share with any potential adopter whose application is successful on paper. It reads so much worse than reality, so meeting Dora should be the deciding factor. Dora is on Apoquel for sensitive skin.”
