The RSPCA took in Jay in January 2021 after his family was unable to care for him, and the shelter workers instantly fell in love with him. He has a large, funny personality that keeps everyone smiling all the time. Unfortunately, it’s been quite difficult to locate Jay a new forever home – and this is due in part to his appearance.
Jay suffers from severe allergies, which are common in his breed, and they have left him nearly entirely hairless. He may not look like the other fluffy dogs at the shelter, but he has just as much love to give, and the shelter staff is hoping that someone will fall in love with his wonderfully distinctive face.
RSPCA spokesperson Carmen Cole said in a news release that “Jay is such a tiny character, and while he may be small, he certainly makes up for it in personality,” “We truly hope that someone out there will be able to look past his lack of hair and see that he has a lot of love to share.”
The 9-year-old puppy has now been without a home for almost 400 days. Even though no one has come to claim him, his shelter buddies remain hopeful that his new forever family is out there someplace.
Due to health difficulties and other things, Jay has certain specific desires for his future home. He requires a family who will keep him on a strict diet and help him stick to his medication regimen.He’d prefer to live in an adult-only household with no other pets, so he may be the focus of attention at all times. He would also prefer a fenced-in yard and a home with hard floors rather than carpeted floors because dust mites aggravate his allergies.
“We know it will be difficult to find a home that meets all of Jay’s requirements, and we appreciate that the cost of his continuous care may deter individuals,” Cole added. “But we’re not giving up on Jay; he’s a fiery character, a cheeky chappie with oodles of charm, and he has expensive taste-but being this cute doesn’t come cheap!” It takes a lot of effort to look as wonderful as he does, and he deserves the best. “
The ideal home for adorable little Jay exists, and maybe he’ll find it soon.
“He is such a sweetheart and will make such a lovely pet or friend for the right person,” Cole added.
