Battersea dog has one year to Bear

Staff and volunteers at Battersea Dogs & Cats Home Old Windsor are appealing to Berkshire’s dog lovers to consider giving a home to one of its canine residents who has been in kennels for almost a year.

Bear, a six year old Rottweiler, came into Battersea Old Windsor because her owners could no longer care for her. Friday 7 October will mark Bear’s one year stint in kennels, making her one of the centre’s longest serving residents.

Vicky Snook, Senior Rehomer at Battersea Old Windsor says: “Bear is such a docile, loving and cuddly girl but sadly she’s yet to catch someone’s eye. She’ll make a wonderful companion with the right family and has a lot of love to give new owners. Everyone here’s so fond of her and would love to see her go off to a new home.”

The average stay for dogs at Battersea is 48 days but some, like Bear, stay much longer. Vicky continues: “There’s no time limit on how long animals stay in our care and unfortunately it can take some dogs a bit longer to find their perfect match. We hope it won’t be too long before Bear finds her dream of a new home.”

Bear is looking for experienced owners and an out of town home. She could possibly live with another dog and older children. She walks nicely on the lead and is a gentle, well-mannered dog. To find out more about adopting Bear contact Battersea Old Windsor on 01784 494443 or email
