As it stands, one-year-old Rolo will be spending Christmas all alone in an animal shelter.
The cross breed was taken to the RSPCA York, Harrogate & District Branch after his previous owners failed to care for him properly.
The playful American Bulldog cross Staffy has been waiting seven long months to find a family of his very own who won’t let him down and who he can shower him with love.
Rolo is an intelligent and beautiful dog who enjoys learning new things despite having a short attention span for anything but play time.
His favourite things in life are food, toys and spending time with people and his main ambition is to have fun.
He still has a lot to learn but the kennel environment is holding back his potential to be the most fantastic, loyal and loving pet.
The “bundle of fun” has been described as a very sweet boy who can sometimes forget himself and get a little overexcited.
Rolo has been undergoing some training plans which have helped him while he has been in the care of the RSPCA but needs adopters who will learn how to keep him calm.
Future owners must be willing to carry on his training or enrol him with a behaviourist or dog trainer, either the one used by the shelter or one of their own choosing.
Rolo is very willing to learn new things but adopters will need to be patient with him as he is still very young and boisterous.
He has built up such a strong bond with staff at the centre but it is now his turn to find a family of his own.
Unfortunately, Rolo is not sociable with other dogs or cats so will need to be the only pet in the home and he will need an adult-only home.
He is best suited to staying in the York and surrounding area.
Anyone who is interested in adopting Rolo, can contact the RSPCA York, Harrogate and District branch on 01904 654949 or visit their website.
