Poor Lucy has had a long wait for her forever home. The beautiful Staffie first arrived at a rescue in Rochdale as a stray named Arwen but was constantly overlooked by potential owners.
In 2009 Dunroamin K9 Rescue agreed to take her into their care and find the perfect home. After six months she was adopted and renamed Lucy, and stayed with her new loving owners for a number of years. Sadly, Lucy's owner fell ill and was unable to care for her, so she was returned to Dunroamin's care 11 months ago.
Now estimated to be nine years old, Lucy is even more overlooked. Amy Roebuck at Dunroamin says, "Lucy sadly gets overlooked due to her age which is so upsetting because we know Lucy has so much more to give. She really struggles in a kennel environment and this is no place for her so we are working even harder to find a perfect home for this girl.
"We are looking for a dog and cat free home for Lucy. Although she is fine when out walking on her lead past dogs, she isn't as keen sharing her home with one. Her love is of people. She adores the attention and is so loving. When you meet this girl you instantly fall in love with her.
"She's still very bouncy and can walk for miles. She is spayed, vaccinated and chipped and comes with a cute little piggy shaped tail."
Lucy could potentially suit a family. Amy adds, "We just need to ensure any children present in the home understand the strength behind this girl. She may be older but she's a strong girl!"
