Cheeky beagle Simba is hoping to sniff out a new home.
Visitors to Battersea Dogs and Cats Home in Priest Hill, Old Windsor for its Easter Egg hunt on Sunday may be able to crack the mystery of why he has spent 67 days waiting.
The stray one-year-old pup was brought to the animal centre in February. He needs experienced dog owners able to carry on his training who have children over 13-years-old and live away from the inner city.
Senior rehomer Rebecca Norris said: “Simba is a beautiful boy who is very typical of the Beagle breed and will need owners who have energetic lifestyles to keep up with him. He has now been at the Old Windsor centre longer than the average length of stay for a dog.
"He has a powerful sense of smell and loves his food so he will be a great help at our Easter egg hunt, where families will have to follow clues around the centre to find their Easter treats and win prizes.”
The Easter egg hunt runs from 10.30am to 3pm.
More than 50 street parties are set to take place this weekend across the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and the surrounding areas.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
