A timid dog who had never been for a walk is looking for a loving new family.
Wolfie the Malamute cross lived in a home with 11 other big dogs where he didn’t get any one-to-one attention and was terrified of people when he came into RSPCA care.
After a year of gentle care Wolfie is looking for a special home with owners who can carry on working with him to bring him out of his shell.
Jacqueline Kaye, animal centre supervisor at RSPCA Leybourne animal centre, said: “When Wolfie arrived he was petrified of his own shadow, he was terrified of any contact with people.
“He had never been handled and didn’t have any social skills. He didn’t know how to walk on a lead because he’d never been walked and things like lorries absolutely terrified him.
“Despite his fears Wolfie has never shown any form of aggression, he’s a really lovely dog.”
Patient staff at RSPCA Leybourne Animal Centre in Kent have worked tirelessly with four-year-old Wolfie to help him overcome his fears and are now looking for new owners to continue his recovery.Wolfie body photo.jpg
Jacqueline added: “Wolfie needs a very special home but we know the right people are out there for him.
“We are looking for a very laid back home, a quiet and calm environment, and someone at home with the ability to handle big dogs.
“His new owner will need to be calm, patient and have a wealth of doggy experience so that they can understand how to address his fears.”
Wolfie is the longest stay dog at Leybourne animal centre. He came in RSPCA care in March last year with three of his brothers who have all been rehomed.
