Rescue Dog in Shropshire Seeks New Home After Being Abandoned Tied To Lamppost

A CANINE RESCUE charity in Shropshire is desperately trying to find a new home for a dog found tied to a lamppost last year.

A dog warden in Oxfordshire originally picked up Millie along with another dog, Levi, after they were abandoned and left tied to a lamppost with their worldly possessions in a carrier bag by their side. Finding a home for two dogs is always difficult, so the charity was sadly forced to split them up as Millie’s one-time companion Levi has since been offered a home.

Now Finding Furever Homes is trying to find a home for Millie too, as part of their ‘Black Dogs Rock’ social media campaign running this week.

Andrea Newton, of Finding Furever Homes, which cares for the dogs in partnership with a kennels, near Condover, Shropshire, said: “When she was found, Millie was in poor condition and underweight. Since then we have paid for all her food, accommodation and vet bills – and while we are happy to continue to do so, what we really want is to find her the loving home she deserves.”

“She is a gorgeous older girl who can be quite soppy and loves being around people. There really is no reason why she wouldn’t make a wonderful pet, but sadly black dogs like Millie are regularly overlooked for dogs with lighter coats.”

Millie is a Staffordshire Bull-Terrier, believed to be around six or seven years old. She is good with other dogs, but not cats, and could live with a family with older children. She is currently being cared for at a private boarding kennels and will be rehomed through Finding Furever Homes, which sponsors her place there.

Andrea added: “Millie is currently in Shropshire but could be rehomed anywhere in England and Wales – the most important thing is that we find her a loving ‘furever’ home of their own – wherever that is.”
