Dulux was once a cute gift to someone; however, over time, his cuteness faded as his coat became matted and dirty – he was surrendered; the SPCA gave him a makeover and look at him shine once more!


Winelands, South Africa (15 April 2022) – Dulux the pup went from being a filthy, scruffy unwanted pup with a heavy heart and the world on his shoulders to a happy boy, all thanks to the Winelands SPCA and an excellent grooming session.

The SPCA branch confirmed that Dulux lacked a little TLC, but under all that mess, he is a beautiful and sweet boy. His coat was matted and overgrown; he was riddled with ticks.

Dulux was once a gift for someone; after a time, he was surrendered to the SPCA. Given a second chance, he has the ability to make any family home a happy one.

The SPCA is encouraging people to meet Dulux so that he can find his forever home. We do not doubt that he will have stolen someone’s heart by the end of the long weekend!

“Dulux (male) was surrendered to us this week – initially a present, but now unwanted.
He was ridden with ticks, had matted fur and could barely see through his overgrown coat
We immediately saw the potential in him
A wash here… a tick and flea treatment there… a pair of scissors to open those beautiful eyes… and VOILA!
So now what?
He needs a home of course! 
If this beautiful dog caught your attention, give us a call and pay him a visit! He would love to meet you! 
Please note:
– all domestic animals currently in your care must be sterilised in order to qualify for adoption.”
