Home wanted for canine hero down on his luck

From the day he was picked up as a puppy from the Gisborne SPCA, labrador-cross John-Boy has known nothing but love and constant attention.

Four years later he is back at the Matawhero SPCA haven waiting for a new home.

John-Boy was brought in four months ago when his 86-year-old owner Fong Wong had a stroke and was forced to move to a rest home in Auckland.

Wong's nephew, Gisborne Mayor Meng Foon, said his uncle was concerned for the welfare of his furry friend.

"He doesn't want the dog to be put down. He hopes it will find a loving home and has given the SPCA a sizeable donation to help look after it."
