If a new year could mean a new pet for your home - here are five four-legged friends for you to consider.

These tail waggers are in the care of RSPCA Cornwall Branch, based at Higher Quoit Farm near St. Columb.

The site of more than six acres is centrally located with good road access, providing a base from which animals can be adopted throughout Cornwall.

So, if you’re considering a new dog to invite into your home, take a look at these three who are all looking for that special someone to take them in.



Falmouth Packet:

Breed: Crossbreed/unknown
Age: Approximately 2 Years

This gorgeous girl will need time and patience to build her confidence with the big wide world but once she's found her paws, a very cheeky and playful side will come out.

She thrives off cuddles and reassurance from people and thinks of herself as a lap dog!

She may be able to live with another dog but not cats and could also live with sensible older children.

Falmouth Packet:

Breed: Collie (smooth coat)
Age: Approximately 1 year

Bright Bailey unfortunately has struggled to find his forever home.

Bailey came into the care of the RSPCA as he originally was a lock-down puppy and has not had the early socialisation required to give him the confidence needed to be comfortable out and about in the real world.

He would benefit from an adult only home in a quiet rural area with people with experience of collies and their breed traits.

Bailey will need the time and patience from his new family to help continue with his reward-based training to overcome some of his worries.

Falmouth Packet:

Breed: Bull Mastiff crossbreed
Age: Approximately 2 years

Make way for one of the most handsome, loving dogs there is - Basher.

He is a big, strong lad who will require strong owners as he can get a bit excited when he sees birds.

Basher loves a cuddle and a good fuss and will make a great addition to the right family.

Unfortunately, this isn't Bashers first time in a rehoming centre and it is hoped this time round he can find his perfect forever home with support from an RSPCA behaviourist.

Basher will need to live in an adult only home due to his behaviour issues.
