EVERY week the Times & Speaker teams up with the Scottish SPCA in a bid to rehome a pet.
And this week is the turn of Hudson, who is being looked after at the charity’s Lanarkshire Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre in Hamilton.
The 10-year-old crossbreed was found wandering in the streets alone in August this year, and no one came to claim him after he was taken into the SSPCA’s care.
Centre manager Karen Russell said: “It’s such a shame to see older pets like Hudson languishing in our kennels, particularly as they come into our care through no fault of their own.
“Hudson is a true gentleman who loves to greet visitors enthusiastically and will do almost anything for a treat. He’s full of character and still has a twinkle in his eye,.
“You couldn’t find a more loyal and loving companion than Hudson and we know that whoever rehomes him will have a truly devoted friend.
“It’s heartbreaking to see a dog resigning himself to a life of solitude but we think Hudson has started to realise that he’s all alone in his old age.
“We’d love him to have a new best friend to focus all his love and attention on.”
If you can give Hudson a loving home, please call the SSPCA Animal Helpline 03000 999 999, quoting reference Motherwell Times.
The rehoming Centre, on Bothwell Road, is open Monday to Sunday from 10am until 4pm.
