Senior dog Daisy needs a second chance

A nine-year-old Mongrel named Daisy has been at Battersea Dogs & Cats Home for nearly 100 days, but so far no one has come forward to give her a cosy and warm home this winter.

Daisy’s owners got her from Battersea eight years ago as a young dog, before bringing her back to the charity earlier this year after a change in circumstances made it difficult to keep a large dog like her.

Steve Craddock, Centre Manager at Battersea said:

Pug cross Florence survived being run over twice

Earlier this year, a dog was brought into Battersea Dogs & Cats Home after being hit by a car, not once, but twice - neither driver stopped. The sad little Pug-Terrier-cross had severe injuries to both her front and back legs that left her unable to walk.

The eight-year-old was taken in by a local dog warden when she was found injured on the streets of Enfield, North London, before being brought to the world-famous animal rescue centre. Battersea staff decided to name her Florence.
