While everybody prepares to overindulge during Easter, one homeless pooch named Baylie at Dogs Trust is aiming to shed some weight and gain a new owner.
Soon-to-be super slimmer, Staffordshire Bull Terrier Baylie will be resisting the treats in the hope that someone will find her irresistible. The seven-year-old is currently under the care of Dogs Trust Evesham and weighs 23kg - around 6kg over her recommended weight.
Baylie has been put on a strict calorie controlled diet and exercise plan to help slim down and she is currently living in a foster home through the centre's Home from Home scheme.
Sarah Fortey, Home From Home Co-ordinator at Dogs Trust Evesham, said, "Baylie is an adorable girl who loves attention and fuss. She will do anything for food but she has swapped sniffing out treats in favour of sniffing out a new home. she still has a little way to go until she reaches her goal weight - which we're hoping her new family can help her achieve.
"She is an affectionate girl looking for a home with owners who are around for most of the day as she loves human company. She will need a new family who are committed to keeping her trim and will need to be taken on regular walks to help her slim down to a healthier size and keep those pounds off.
"Whilst she'll be laying of the treats this Easter, we're very much hoping she'll satisfy someone's craving for canine company!"
Baylie doesn't mind have four-legged walking buddies but would need to be the only dog in the home. She could live with children over the age of four. If you are interested in giving Baylie a happy, healthy home please call Dogs Trust Evesham on 0300 303 0292.
