Here is a “happily ever after story” from this morning’s mail:
A Staffordshire bull terrier nicknamed “Scotland’s saddest dog” because he spent more than half his life waiting to be adopted, finally found a new home.
Two year-old Scooby spent 15 months in the kennels and care of the Scottish SPCA. Staff at the Aberdeenshire Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre said Scooby was always passed over for “cute fluffy” dogs and was “dying of depression” because of the situation.
A nationwide appeal was issued last week to find Scooby a permanent home.
Retired police dog handler David Prokipczyn and his wife Anne read about Scooby’s plight in the newspaper. The couple always had dogs in their home, raising two ex-police German shepherds, boxers, a beagle, a Jack Russell terrier, a spaniel and their favorite, a brindle Staffordshire bull terrier named Cassie.
