Britain’s loneliest dog Bess looking for home after 10 years in rescue centre

Britain's loneliest dog is still looking for a home after spending 10 years in a rescue centre.

Staff are desperate to find Bess – a black and white Collie cross – a loving family to spend her twilight years with.

She has been at the centre since she was a puppy, and staff have now started an appeal to get her a new owner.

A spokesman said: “Bess is probably the most overlooked dog ever.

“She has, sadly, been with us for 10 years so it’s no surprise that she now has trust issues with new people.

“It takes her a while to build up a bond with someone but it’s handy to have some treats to win her over.

“She is very stubborn and if she doesn’t want to do something she won’t do it.

“This is how she has ­become very clever in conning staff to give her treats.”

Workers at Last Chance Animal Rescue in Edenbridge, Kent, stressed Bess will need careful handling until she adjusts to her new environment.

The spokesman added: “When Bess trusts you she is affectionate and loves to be petted, but very much on her own terms.

“Bess would need a very understanding and devoted home with someone who is happy to leave her to adjust to her new home life after so many years in kennels.

“All Bess would love is a nice soft comfy bed and short walks throughout the day. She is house trained and not destructive.

“She would make an interesting pet and if you have patience she could become a loving addition to your home.”
