Animal charity the RSPCA says it's "pulling out all the stops" to find forever homes for "unlovable" pets, including Hertfordshire hound Mia.

Four-year-old Mia was just nine days old when she was rescued with her mum and siblings from poor conditions in October 2019.

She’s since spent her whole life - four years and four months - under RSPCA care.

A spokesperson for the RSPCA said: "The Dutch Shepherd is highly intelligent and very active, so needs someone who can keep up with her.

"She can get overexcited at times, so is currently walked in a muzzle, and is looking for an owner who is keen to continue her training.

"However, she’s incredibly affectionate and great fun to spend time with.

"She’d like a quiet, semi-rural home without children, where she’ll be the only pet."

If you are interested in providing Mia a loving home, email the RSPCA Southridge Animal Centre in Hertfordshire at or call the centre on 0300 123 0704.
