Britain’s most unwanted dog is still looking for an owner… over a year after being found wandering the streets as a lonely, stray puppy.
The black greyhound, called Charlie, has now been in an animal home for 369 days.
But has never had an owner after being picked up as a stray, just when he was just a few months old.
The cute two-year-old got no interest from families willing to take him in last year.
He is currently at the RSPCA Danaher Animal Home near Braintree, Essex, where he’s been since 14 January last year.
A spokesperson for the animal charity said: “Charlie’s early days weren’t a fairytale.
“He was discovered wandering alone, a scared and lonely puppy.
“Sweet Charlie has really had a lot of emotional turmoil during his short life.”
They added: “We’ve absolutely fallen head over heels for him.
“But what he truly deserves is a forever companion to embark on a new chapter with.”
Charlie doesn’t like other dogs and can’t live with cats and rabbits.
But he does love going on car rides and walks.
Craig Horsler, animal welfare supervisor at the RSPCA Centre, said: “Charlie is a lovable dog who deserves a warm and loving home.
“Despite a year of waiting, he hasn’t given up hope, and neither have we.”
Craig added: “The sad thing is Charlie is really content and loves being at Danaher and he thinks it’s his home.
“Which is really heartbreaking because we know that if he did have a home to call his own he would be the happiest little chap ever.
“We keep telling him, he will love a home with a family even more.
“Charlie is a firm favourite with everyone at the centre and he’s just a real charmer.
“He has what we call an ‘on the go’ personality so needs sufficient exercise including walks and opportunities to run and play.”
