After two years and labeled as one of Britain’s “unluckiest dogs” Dillon still hasn’t had any luck finding a new home. The adorable lurcher was found two years ago lying beside his dead owner “still protecting his body until the very end.” Doesn’t Dillon deserve to be in a loving home?

“Hi everyone, my name’s Dillon and I’m a very handsome 9 year old Lurcher. A lot of you may recognise my face as I’ve been in the kennels for a really long time now. I’ve been very patiently waiting for my forever home and I’ve seen so many of my kennel mates come and go but nobody has come for me and I really don’t understand why.”

Dillon is nine-years-old and is currently in the care of National Animal Welfare Trust (NAWT) shelter in Cornwall, England, but we all know, no matter how much the staff and volunteers love and spoil him, every dog deserves their own family.

Here’s Dillon’s story:

“He was found lying with his owner who had passed away and was obviously protecting him right up until he couldn’t anymore – which was very sad. He came to us about two years ago from that situation which is what Dillon wanted and needed, but we’ve been trying to find the right one for him, the right home and family.”

Sadly, Dillon seems to have a hard time staying calm, and loves to rush around on his walks. Dillon thinks he is still a puppy and has lots of energy, but even as an older dog, he likes to have lots of action before settling down for a nap and some loving attention. In addition, Dillon needs to be the only pet in the home without children as he tends to get possessive of his human. His most recent home just didn’t work out as described on a Facebook post Monday:

“Poor Dillon can not believe it. His reserve has fell through yet again. We are absolutely devastated. Through no fault of his own the customer decided they would wait for a Labrador as they don’t usually own lurchers and one that could play with family dogs that visit Dillon wouldn’t want to share his toys and play with little dogs so it just wasn’t going to work. We had all got our hopes up for him and actually thought that he was going to be moving into his forever home.”

Many people have offered a home for Dillon, but have other cats, dogs or flying parrots in their homes which as previously explained, Dillon couldn’t handle. He definitely needs to be the only pet in the home. He really is the unluckiest dog.
