In August 2017, Sue arrived as a puppy, at Bath Cats and Dogs Home and has since spent most of her life at the shelter. Sure, she has some special needs, but doesn’t every dog deserve a loving home? And if we tell her story, surely someone will read about this gal and want to give her a forever home.
The shelter just issued a plea to help the four-year pooch dubbed “Britain’s Loneliest Dog,” and except for a brief adoption in 2018 when her family returned her because of changes to their circumstances, Sue hasn’t found a family she can truly call her own. And so the staff at the shelter have made it their goal to find Sue that loving home she so deserves by the end of the year.
Alright – Sue does have some “challenging behaviors” but with patience, training and care, the very affectionate pup can become a model canine citizen.
“All of our animal care team love her. She’s really people-focused, she loves toys, and she’s very social. She won’t sit in a corner and not do a lot. The other really nice thing about her is that she’s clever. She likes to learn new stuff. She can already do things like paw and sit. She loves learning because it’s human interaction. She definitely has some challenging behaviors, so she will need an experienced owner, but it’s sad because she’s such a sweet dog.”Vanessa Langford for Bath Cats and Dogs Home on Facebook
To best succeed Sue needs to be the only dog in the home and cannot live with children. She also needs a secure yard and must wear a muzzle when out walking as many lurchers do.
And it’s not like people aren’t trying to help Sue, as adoption offers do come in, but her special needs must be met before she can find her “furever home.” The shelter just doesn’t want to risk Sue getting over-excited with another dog or child – which of course wouldn’t be her fault, but likely she would be blamed if anyone would be injured.
Meanwhile Sue does have a great home with the volunteers and staff at the shelter, but there’s no place like home. Perhaps someone will read about Sue and see her adorable photos here – and decide adoption is a must-do. Sharing her story will help.
