A DOG that was searching for a new home after it became too much for its owner has now been adopted. 

In September RSPCA Basingstoke and Andover appealed to find a foster or forever home for young dog Pepsi.

Pepsi, the one-year-old Lab Cross Collie, was adopted at four months old but had to be passed on to the RSPCA as she was too much for her owner.

Now, the RSPCA has announced that Pepsi has been adopted once again and went to her forever home in Bournemouth on Saturday, October 28 and is now living a happy life by the sea.

She has also started basic training with a dog trainer, which Pepsi couldn’t receive inside a kennel.

While in the care of the RSPCA branch, Pepsi had to stay in kennels as all suitable foster homes in the area were full - an environment which made Pepsi ‘boisterous and overexcited’ according to RSPCA Basingstoke and Andover volunteer Sarah Biro.

Sarah has volunteered with the Basingstoke and Andover branch of the charity for 16 years, providing vital support and a foster home to animals in the area.

The branch is run by a committee of volunteers and relies on public donations and fundraising to support its animal welfare activities. These include animal re-homing, provision of limited financial assistance and the promotion of responsible pet ownership through emergency neutering and microchipping campaigns.

Anyone unable to commit to rehoming an animal permanently, there is the option to foster animals from the RSPCA.
