The three-year-old was rescued by the Rotherham-based animal charity Helping Yorkshire Poundies, which said ‘we don't think she's had the best start to life’. It shared this adorable photo of the cute dog as it appealed for someone to adopt her and show her the love and kindness she deserves.

The charity pointed out that she needs a quiet, calm home, which means no young children as she is much too nervous, at least one other ‘confident, stable’ dog and a completely secure garden.

“She's been settling in with us for a while and building up her confidence. She adores other dogs and will need another stable, confident dog to give her the confidence and security she needs. She's now ready to start looking for her dream home.”Helping Yorkshire Poundies is run by a team of volunteers who it says ‘work tirelessly to help dogs on death row’.
