All of gentle-hearted Nuke’s food, veterinary costs and ongoing care will be provided by Woodside Animal Centre but he needs an experienced, adult-only, pet-free home to live out his remaining life.

A spokeswoman for the centre said: “It brings us great pain to say that there has been a change of plan in our quest to find Nuke a forever home.

“After spending over a year and three months in our care, RSPCA inspectors winning his cruelty case in court, undergoing multiple operations to remove cancerous lumps and other on-going health issues, we have sadly found that the cancer has returned and this time it is terminal.

Due to this, we are now looking for a long-term foster home for Nuke, whilst he still has a good quality of life.”

She added: “Despite his size, Nuke is one of the most loving, gentle hearted and endearing dogs we have had the pleasure of meeting here at Woodside.

“He is very friendly and loves to play, he is very much a bull in a china shop and sofa snuggles are a must.

“We really hope we can find him the perfect foster home, so he can finally have the life he truly deserves, no matter how long that may be for.”
