This furry guy is Fluffy, an affectionate little fellow that would love to find a new home for Christmas.

He would need to be in a quiet and calm household to feel safe and secure and would prefer to be the only pet in the home.

Fluffy could live with older children that can understand his needs and is good with being groomed to keep his thick coat looking good.

Next up is the young Bluey, a Staffordshire Bull Terrier cross Shar Pei looking for a new home through the Home Direct scheme, meaning he stays with his owners while the Blue Cross centre finds Blue a new home.

Blue is still young so would need owners that will have the time to keep training him and keep up with his socialisation skills.

He could live with another dog that is confident with an excitable boy like Blue and he would be more suitable at a home with older children that can help continue his training.

This is Lola, another Staffordshire Bull Terrier cross Shar Pei, a very affectionate girl who loves getting attention and cuddles.

Lola can get a little worried at times, especially if shut in a room so she would need a home where there is plenty of space to roam and her new owners would need to be around most of the day.

She can sometimes jump up for attention but otherwise is well mannered and can will with any age children after meeting at the centre first.

Meet Echo, a very handsome cat with the unique look of having two different coloured eyes.

Echo loves the company of people and loves to play with string toys at the centre, sometimes though Echo can get a little over-stimulated so prefer people who are calm and reliable.

Echo can be matched to a home with older children who can spend time with her playing with toy games as well as giving her a gentle fuss.

Echo would need to be the only pet in the home however and can’t live with other cats or dogs.

Last but by no means least is the gentle giant Tiffany, a Great Dane cross Mastiff hoping to find a new home in time for Christmas.

A big softy at heart, Tiffany gets on well with other dogs but loves being spoiled too much so would need to be the only dog in the home and can’t live with cats.

Tiff can be homed with older children however, as she is a large breed and can occasionally forget how big she is.

The process to adopt any of these pets is simple and begins with applicants completing a ‘Homefinder’ form.

This can either be completed online or in-house at the Blue Cross centre on Bourne Hill, Wherstead.

The re-homing fees for dogs aged over 16 weeks is £160 and the fee for cats is £65.

Where possible all pets are neutered, micro-chipped and will have had at least their first vaccination before going to new homes.

New owners have the benefit of four weeks of free pet insurance, as well as free behaviour support for the lifetime of their pet.
