An agoraphobic dog living at Battersea Dogs and Cats Home is set to appear on Paul O'Grady's For the Love of Dogs on Thursday.
Whisper is so scared of people that staff at the home in Old Windsor are finding it impossible to find her a new home.
The six-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier was found cowering under a bush in Surrey in January.
It is thought she had most likely been used as a breeding bitch.
Battersea senior animal welfare assistant Karen Slavid said: "Whisper is a gentle, loving, kind-natured dog, and she is going to make the most amazing pet for someone who has the time and patience to slowly build her trust and confidence.
"We know that she's going to need very understanding owners but more than anything we want her to enjoy a life outside kennels like any other dog. Whisper has had a terrible start to life and she really deserves a happy ending."
The Paul O'Grady programme will be shown on ITV1 at 8.30pm.
