As spring arrives – or tries too – Battersea Old Windsor’s long stay resident, Daffodil, is hoping for a garden of her very own.

It’s been a year since the two-year-old Lurcher Daffodil arrived at Old Windsor’s gates as a stray. She was brought to the charity by a local dog warden, after she was found wandering in the fields near Wraysbury.

The average stay for a dog at Battersea is 38 days, but Daffodil has now been at the charity for 365 days.

Battersea Old Windsor’s Centre Manager Kaye Mughal said, “Daffodil has spent almost half her life at Battersea, and it’s heart-breaking to see her being overlooked time and time again. She sadly really struggles with life in the kennels, which means visitors haven’t been able to see her true, sweet nature.

“Daffodil’s currently out on foster and we’ve seen her really thrive when she’s been given a chance in a home. Because she’s spent so much time in kennels, Daffodil’s looking for experienced owners who can build on the work her foster carers have done and help her to blossom into the best dog she can be.”
