'UK's Most Unwanted Dog' Has Been Waiting Four Years For A Home

Every dog deserves a forever home, and one unfortunate Lurcher, who has been dubbed the "Britain's most unwanted dog", is still waiting for her own.

Four-year-old Sue was rescued from the streets in the Bath area and arrived at the RSPCA’s Bath Cats and Dogs Home on 22nd August 2017.

Staff are desperate to find Sue the right home after she’s seen 941 of her kennel-mates go off to their new homes during her four years at the home.

Chief Executive of Bath Cats and Dogs Home Rachel Jones, said: “We’re at a loss as to why poor Sue hasn’t been re-homed.

"We all absolutely adore her and love taking her out for long walks and giving her lots of attention but we’re desperate to find her her own home.

“We believe that Sue’s colour may be putting people off. Previous research by the RSPCA has shown that brindle dogs take around 36 per cent longer to re-home than other colours.

“We believe Sue is around four so she was just a youngster when she came into our care and has spent her whole life with us. It really is time that she makes a fresh start with a lovely new family who can finally show her the love and security that she deserves.”

Staff are looking for an experienced owner who will be confident taking Sue's muzzle off and putting it on.

She has some challenging behaviours, which staff have been working on with her, and her new owners will need to be happy to continue this training. 

Sue was re-homed in 2018 but was returned to the care of the dogs home in July 2019 when her adopter’s circumstances changed.

It took her some time to settle into her new home but she was getting on well when, sadly, her owners had to bring her back.

“Sue is a sweet and clever pup who can get a little over-excited at times so would benefit from owners who can continue her training," Rachel added.

"Sue is a chaser so we walk her on a lead with a muzzle and we don’t let her run free when we’re out and about unless we’re in a secure field. She walks nicely on the lead and would like an active home where she can enjoy going out for regular, long walks."
