Right, this one’s a bit of a tear-jerker so have a hanky at the ready, you really could make a difference to this young pups life.
Statistically, dogs spend on average 35 days at Battersea waiting to be rehomed. This week at Battersea Dogs and Cats Home Old Windsor, marks the one year anniversary of their longest ever resident, Foxy the loveable Akita.
Age: 1-2 years
Now were at a loss as to why Foxy hasn’t found a loving family to take her in, you see, she’s a bit of a celeb round these parts. Avid fans on the ITV award-winning series Paul O’Grady: For the Love of Dogs, might recognise Foxy as the superhero hound who helped rescue an emaciated Great Dane cross named faith, who had been abandoned in a ditch.
When Foxy isn’t saving lives, she enjoys amusing herself with her favourite toys. She shows high intelligence and already has good training in place and with the right owners will develop into a loyal and rewarding canine companion.
Vicky Snook, Battersea Old Windsor’s Senior Rehomer, said: “She has had some interest from the public but so far the right home has not come along, we are very keen to find her a permanent home. At the moment she is on a foster with a volunteer at Battersea in the evenings which will help her adjust to her new home when the time comes. The whole of Battersea has its fingers and paws crossed for Foxy.”
The loveable Foxy is looking for a home with experienced owners, who live away from the inner city without any other dogs or cats. She can live with children over 13 years old and will need regular walks and a private garden.
If you would like to rehome Foxy please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01784 494443.
