Homeless dog's 10 year plight

Hayden, a three year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier cross, was found wandering the streets of the capital and was brought to the safety of the world famous animal charity where he has been waiting for a home for 358 days (the equivalent of 10 dog years).

The average stay for dogs at Battersea is 48 days but some, like Hayden, stay much longer. Jenny Dugdale, Team Leader at Battersea says: “We can’t understand why Hayden’s been here for so long, but there’s no time limit on how long dogs stay with us. He’s such a handsome boy and is really eye catching with his unusual markings. Hopefully someone will fall for him soon as he really does deserve to find a loving new family.”

Hayden is a fun and lively boy who likes to keep himself busy. He is looking for active owners who share his lust for life. Hayden would do well with people who enjoy long walks and he would make a good running companion. Although sociable with dogs when out and about, Hayden would rather be the only dog in the house but he may be able to live with a cat.
