The RSPCA is looking for a retirement home for an elderly dog who was abused by his previous owner.
Nate, an elderly Staffordshire bull terrier, is being cared for by the RSPCA after his previous owner slashed his throat.
The owner was given an 18 month suspended prison sentence and was disqualified from owning dogs for five years.
Nate, who is now 10, has recovered from his injuries and needs a happy retirement home where he can get the love and attention he deserves. The RSPCA is appealing for anyone who thinks they can offer Nate a home to get in touch.
Suzanne Norbury, from the RSPCA, said: “Nate is just gorgeous. He’s such a lovely lad. He came to us after he’d been picked up by an inspector from the police.

“He was in an awful state. His throat had been slashed from left to right and back again. The wound was so deep we weren’t sure he’d survive his injuries.
“The vet did an amazing job and the team dedicated their lives to helping his recovery. His dressings were changed everyday for weeks and weeks and he didn’t complain once, he never even raised a hair.

“Sadly he has a haunted look, it’s as if he remembers what happened and is struggling to understand why. We sometimes wish he could talk.
“Nate desperately deserves a second chance in a loving retirement home where he can live out his days in peace after recovering from such a horrible ordeal.”
The ideal home for Nate would be one where is he the only dog and with no young children, because of his advanced years.
Anyone who thinks they can offer Nate a home should email email@example.com with ‘Nate’ in the title of the email.
