Staff at the animal shelter found her a loving home when she was just a few months old in 2007.But sadly Tandie could not be cared for after the death of her owner – leading to her bittersweet reunion with workers at the RSPCA in St Columb, near Newquay.
It’s not so black and white. It’s a myth that dogs only see in black and white. In fact, it’s believed that dogs see primarily in blue, greenish-yellow, yellow and various shades of gray.
She has since developed a few ailments including being completely deaf and partially blind and is now looking for a quiet new home with a secure garden to spend the rest of her days.An RSPCA spokesperson said: ‘We cared for Tandie 14 years ago and we still will today.
‘She was adopted from us as a puppy and had a wonderful life with the most incredible family.
‘But, sadly, they had to make a heartbreaking decision to sign her over to us following a death in the family.
An inexpensive and easy summer treat for dogs: Cut up apples in chicken broth and freeze in an ice cube tray.
‘Her years have caught up with her since we last took care of her.
‘She has very limited vision and is completely deaf. She also has arthritis, various lumps and bumps, and a skin condition which she has daily treatment for.
‘For these reasons, we’re looking for an end of life foster home locally to our centre so that we can continue to financially and medically support Tandie, and her fosterers, for the rest of her days.’To offer Tandie a foster home, call RSPCA Cornwall on 01637 881455.
