Staffie named after Great British Bake Off star Martha Collison

A chocolate-coloured dog has been named after Great British Bake Off contestant Martha Collison - in the hope it will prove a 'recipe for success' in finding her a new home. 

Martha, an eight-year-old Staffordshire bull terrier, was brought into Battersea Dogs and Cats Home in Priest Hill, Old Windsor as a stray in April.

She has spent 119 days with the Berkshire animal charity.

Staff have renamed her after 17-year-old Sunninghill girl Martha Collison - who is competing against 11 other bakers in the hit BBC show and is a pupil at Charters School, Sunningdale.

Rebecca Norris, senior rehomer at Battersea, Old Windsor, said: “Martha has been at Battersea almost four times the average length of stay for a dog and it’s high time she found herself a home. 

"We’re all supporting the TV Martha in the competition and hopefully her success will rub off on staffie Martha too.”

Staffie Martha needs a calm, adult only, 'retirement home'.
