A lonely Greyhound Collie cross has marked his two year anniversary at Battersea Dogs & Cats Home.
Bud was brought to the Priest Hill site after his owners could no longer cope.
In his 730 days at Battersea Old Windsor, about 10,000 Battersea dogs have found loving homes.
Bud has been at the centre 20 times longer than the average stay for a dog and is now the longest-serving resident across all three Battersea centres, and staff are making a desperate plea to find him a home.
He is fully house-trained and loves food, walks and trips in the car.
Bud can live with older children, will need a private garden and can be left alone for short periods of time.
He also needs to be kept on a lead and muzzled on walks, because of his breed’s chase drive.
Kaye Mughal, Battersea Old Windsor’s centre manager, said: “It’s so sad Bud still hasn’t found a home when he’s such a beautiful and fun-loving dog who would fit in perfectly with a family.
“There’s no denying that Bud needs owners who can cope with his lively nature – but we know the right home will come along eventually.”
Bud is currently in a foster home. For more information call 01784 494443.
