Age: 4
Gender: Male

This gentle greyhound won no less than nine races under his professional name of Sudden Arrival but once his racing days were over, he found himself abandoned. Happily, four year old Sudsey is a joy to be around. He is polite, undemanding, yet very affectionate, and will make a wonderful family pet. Sudsey can live anywhere, providing he has a decent sized garden, and doesn’t need a lot of exercise. He could live with children over the age of 12, so long as they understand he needs peace and quiet, but would like to be the only pet in the household. Now his racing days are over, this gorgeous guy deserves to curl up in a loving home.

Black & white cat
Age: 1-2
Gender: Male

Henry is a sweet little boy who came to Battersea as a nervous, miserable lad but is now a much happier cat ready for a new home. Every day he is becoming more playful and responsive and it’s great to see him doing so well. He is looking for a calm, experienced, adult home with patient people who won’t rush him into being friends. He will take time to settle but once he feels confident, will make a loving pet to have around. He would like a garden but should not be let out until he’s had plenty of time to settle in and bond with his new owners.

Age: 6
Gender: Male

Floyd is a lovely Dalmatian who is looking for a quiet home to settle into. Blue Cross feel Floyd would be best placed in an adult only home this is due to his sensitive nature , he could be left for 4 hours maximum. Floyd could live with a cat who is confident and used to living with dogs. Blue Cross feel Floyd would need to be the only dog in the household , due to history and behaviour seen at the centre. Floyd is social with other dogs and would like to meet up with some doggy friends. Floyd is a friendly , playful dog with lots of energy. He is very intelligent and willing to learn. Floyd would provide a loving, fun addition to the right family.

Location: Tiverton
Contact: If you would like more information about this animal please contact the Blue Cross Tiverton centre on 01884 855291 or see
