Elderly dog who ‘loves walks’ needs forever home after weeks at rescue centre
PUBLISHED: 12:52 11 July 2019 | UPDATED: 15:55 11 July 2019
The RSPCA East Norfolk is looking to rehome a dog who came to them in a poorly way.
Jenkins, who is 14 years old, came to the RSPCA via an inspector around five weeks ago.
At the time he was in a bad way with sore red skin and weak legs, but after treatment and care he is looking much better and is ready for a home of his own.
A spokesman for the RSPCA East Norfolk said: "Jenkins has a heart murmur but this doesn't hold him back, he still loves his walks and likes to play with the other dogs at the kennels."
An adult home would be best for Jenkins and he could be rehomed with another dog.
If you think you could give Jenkins the home he needs then please see the ways to get in touch with the RSPCA at the end of this article.

Ella is described as a pretty white and black cat, thought to be aged around four years old.
Staff say she has a sweet personality and likes to be around people, however she is easily scared so would be best suited to a quiet adult home where she was the only cat.

She is nine years old and does have some minor health problems so has been overlooked so far.
