A sweet older Staffie is still looking for a retirement home, almost one year after she was admitted to Battersea Dogs and Cats Home in Old Windsor.
Martha, a nine-year-old Staffordshire bull terrier, has been living at the kennels in Priest Hill since April last year.
Staff at Battersea named her after Sunningdale’s Great British Bake-Off star Martha Collison in an effort to increase her chances of finding a new home.
But she now holds the unwanted title of being the longest-serving resident across all three Battersea centres in South London, Old Windsor and Brands Hatch.
Kaye Mughal, centre manager at Battersea Old Windsor, said: “People see a brindle Staffie and don’t look twice, but what they’re missing is a loving dog with a wonderful nature.
"She has a heart of gold and we hope this St Patrick's day we can turn her luck around."
If you’re a loving owner with older children and no other pets then call 01784 494443 to help Martha find a home.
