A DOG who is hard of hearing needs an understanding owner to take him on.

Brian is a good natured 12-month-old Staffy cross in the care of RSPCA Worcester & Mid-Worcestershire Branch through no fault of his own.

He is looking for a special home because of his hearing issues and is described as a friendly and affectionate boy.

Geraldine Haynes, branch trustee, said: "Brian loves company and would love a home where someone is around a good part of the day.

"He enjoys his walks and needs an active new owner.

"Brian is fine with other dogs and would be happy living with a canine friend.

"He's a lovely boy who would be a wonderful companion."

Brian is in good condition, housetrained, neutered, chipped, vet checked and vaccinated.

He will be rehomed with four weeks' free pet insurance. Please call Geraldine for more details on 01886 822083.
