Carers at a Sheffield animal centre are looking for someone to ‘take a chance’ and be a Mamma for Mia.
The Staffordshire terrier crossbreed was rescued by RSPCA Sheffield and treated for a nasty growth on one of her ears.
Now she is sending out an ‘SOS’ for someone to give her a permanent, loving home.
Tony Benham, RSPCA Sheffield animal care manager, said: “This lovely lady is thought to be aged about four years and nine months.
“When we rescued her, she had a large growth on one of her ears which was sore.
“Although the lump wasn’t cancer, leaving growths of any sort untreated can be dangerous as they can go from being benign and harmless to cancerous.
“It’s important owners take their pets for regular vet checks and have anything like this removed.
“She is now full of the joys of spring and looking for a new home.”
Mr Benham said Mia has a bouncy nature and loves to play, meaning she is best suited for families with children over the age of 10.
She is good with other dogs and will need a minimum of two, 30-minute walks a day. She has some allergies for which she is taking medication.
