Battersea dogs are hoping their luck will change this Chinese New Year

It’s the start of the Chinese New Year on Friday 16 February 2018 and it’s the Year of the Dog, much to the delight of some of the residents at Battersea Dogs & Cats Home. These dogs are looking for a new home and they’re hoping it’s going to be their year.

In the Chinese Zodiac, it is said that those born in the Year of the Dog are sincere, reliable, intelligent, brave and always ready to help others, and these are just some of the traits that come naturally to these four dogs.

Battersea Black Greyhounds need love


New statistics released today show black Greyhounds are the loneliest dogs at Battersea Dogs & Cats Home’s Old Windsor centre.

While the average Battersea dog takes just 35 days to rehome – black Greyhounds at Old Windsor typically wait 55 days to find a family.

Sadly, some can take even longer to find a home – such as seven-year-old former racer Nellie who’s been at Battersea for over 100 days.

Battersea Old Windsor Centre Manager Kaye Mughal says black dogs often have a harder time catching people’s eye.
