RESCUE ME: Can you offer big softie Sabre a home?

They tell you not to judge a book by its cover, and nor should you judge a dog by their name.

Unfortunately for four-year-old German Shepherd-cross, Sabre, his name couldn’t be further removed from his true nature.

This sweet-hearted, puppy-like pooch is waiting patiently for that special someone to come along and give him all that he ever desired – a place to call home, and a lap on which to rest his head.

Sabre loves nothing more than curling up with his favourite cuddly toy and pillow. The softie just wants to play and to be with those that love him most.

However, there is no escaping the fact that Sabre is a big lad and will need an owner that can handle him.

Sabre would be best suited to a home with children of secondary-school age, on the basis that he’s a bit too big for little ones. He could potentially go to a home with existing dogs – provided they get on well.

Gary Taylor, animal care manager at RSPCA Chesterfield and North Derbyshire branch said: “Please give him a thought. He deserves it and has been with us for such a long time now. His wonderful spirit and playful soul make him the perfect addition to that right home.”
