With Valentine's Day just around the corner, Battersea Dogs & Cats Home has made a special appeal for its residents who are looking for love. These affectionate canines have been showing off their softer sides by posing in the Battersea kissing booth.
Battersea’s Head of Canine Behaviour and Welfare, Ali Taylor, said, "There are a lot of misconceptions around Staffies and Mastiffs - many people think they’re tough dogs who don’t have much of a taste for tenderness. But these canines crave affection and attention as much as the next breed and they make wonderful, loyal and loving pets - they’re just waiting for someone to give them a chance. They’re all hoping they won’t be left alone in? the kissing booth this Valentine’s Day. Could you be their perfect match?"

Angel was brought into Battersea as a stray, so we don’t know much about her history – but we can see she’s been little over-indulged in the past, so whoever takes her home will have to go easy on the snacks for a while!
