A FAMILY of akitas who have spent most of their lives in kennels are looking for loving new homes.

The three five-year-old siblings, Theo, Tilly and Marcie were found malnourished and in a cramped shed by RSPCA officials last year, and have since been brought back to health at the charity’s Chesterfield branch on Spital Lane.

“They think that the kennels are their home now” said Richard Woodward, animal centre manager. “But all of the dogs are of a loving nature and are very trusting of the staff, but they are now looking for new homes. They are lovely, friendly dogs.”

Marcie and Tilly can go to a home with children aged eight and above and Theo with children over 10. All three will mix with other dogs, but households with cats will need further assesment.
