The Scottish SPCA is seeking a good home for two huskies who have spent more than 200 days in the charity’s care.

Cleo and Mirren are so closely bonded that they cannot bear to be apart and staff at the Scottish SPCA’s Aberdeenshire Animal RescCanine friendse and RehoCanien friends seek ming Centre at Drummoak, near Banchory, fear they may be spending Christmas with only each other for company as no-one seems willing to offer the pair a home.

Centre Manager Graeme Innes said, “We have had lots of people enquire about rehoming the dogs separately, but no-one has yet expressed any interest in taking them both together.

“It would be very unfair to split these dogs up as they dote on each other completely.

“Cleo is the shy one who leans on Mirren for support when she’s feeling a bit unsure while Mirren is a bubbly, fun loving dog who’s outgoing and loves attention.

“With Mirren’s help Cleo’s daft, playful side shines through and together they are a pair of comedians who will entertain you for hours.

“Their antics regularly make us laugh out loud and we know they would bring a huge amount of love, joy and loyalty to one lucky family.

“We know it’s a big consideration to take on two active adult dogs, and not something we’d encourage anyone to do on a whim, however, we’re sure there must be someone out there who has an understanding of the husky breed and the time to invest in these gorgeous girls.”

Cleo and Mirren are both four years old and they have been neutered and microchipped.

Anyone interested in offering Cleo and Mirren a home can call the Scottish SPCA Animal Helpline on 03000 999 999 and ask to be connected to the Aberdeenshire Centre.

In 2011 the Scottish SPCA cared for 13,437 animals and attended 50,039 incidents.

The Scottish charity is completely separate from the RSPCA, who operate in England and Wales only

The Aberdeenshire centre, which opened its doors in 2011, is open daily from 10am until 4pm.
