Dogs Trust Canterbury is currently home to seven year old Staffie Valentine who was handed into Dogs Trust after being attacked as a stray.
Valentine was left with irreversible injuries which resulted in the vet removing her eye. She is now settling in to life at Dogs Trust but is desperately hoping someone will have some love to spare for her.
Despite her ordeal, Valentine loves cuddles and will make a fantastic pet for the right family, but has been overlooked by potential owners so far possibly because of her eye. Staff are hoping to find Valentine a home within a calm adult household, possibly with sensible children over the age of twelve. Valentine is not keen on cats and would prefer to be the only pet, so she can get all the attention and TLC she deserves after her difficult life.
Dogs Trust Rehoming Centre Manager Lizzie Reffell says:
“I am shocked at the level of cruelty Valentine has been subjected to. She is a gorgeous dog and is now learning to cope with her new disability.
Although she is still adjusting to having only one eye, she is learning to trust again very quickly. We really hope she finds a loving home soon, she deserves it.”
If you think you can offer Valentine a home or are interested in finding out more about rehoming a rescue dog, please call Dogs Trust Rehoming Centre Canterbury 01227 792 505.
