USPCA appeal to find Boss a home as one year anniversary approaches

An adorable five-year-old Staffordshire terrier is desperately seeking his forever home after spending a full year in rescue.

Known as Boss, the up-for-adoption pup arrived at the USPCA centre in Newry, in May 2023.

When Boss was handed over to the charity, not much was known about his history but the USPCA animal care team noticed that he was extremely stressed. He wasn’t able to respond to any cues and he did not like the sound of his name.

Today, Boss is new dog. He absolutely loves and thrives on his training which is carried out by USPCA volunteer Brenda, who says: “Everything that Boss has achieved speaks to the incredible pooch he is.

“He can now sit and stay, walk nicely on his lead, heel, maintain eye contact, not jump up and lots more. He has a wonderful personality and will happily lie up beside you and stay close to you.”

To mark his upcoming one year at the USPCA on May 5, the animal care team took Boss out for a day trip this week to Warrenpoint. He enjoyed a nice long walk in the sunshine along the coast and received lots of treats.

Whilst Boss is much loved at the USPCA, what the team want is for him to find his forever home. A spokesperson said: “Out of all of the animals currently in our care, Boss has been with us the longest.

“It’s heartbreaking to see him still waiting one year on. We know he will be such a happy boy once he has a chance to settle into a loving home with owners that can meet his needs. A full training plan and ongoing support from the charity is always available.”

Those interested in adopting Boss can apply for him via the USPCA website or call 028 3025 1000 to have a further chat.
