QUIET homes are needed for four nervous puppies in the care of a Worcestershire animal rescue shelter.

The collie/lurcher cross puppies are 13 weeks old and are all black and white. There is one girl and three brothers.

Geraldine Hayes, a trustee at RSPCA Worcester & Mid-Worcestershire Branch, which is looking after the dogs, said: "These puppies need someone to be around for a good part of the day and a secure garden.

"They are still on the nervous side and would prefer quiet homes without young children."

The puppies - named Lottie, Ben, Bob and Harry - have all been vet checked, microchipped and had flea and worming treatments.

They are vaccinated and will be spayed or neutered when they are old enough and will be rehomed with four weeks' free pet insurance.

Call Geraldine on 01886 822083 for more information on the pups or other dogs for adoption, or visit the branch website: rspca-worcester.org.
