A ten-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier is in need of a new home after spending more than 1,000 days in kennels.

Staffy-cross Zen arrived at the National Animal Welfare Trust in Watford in 2016, after transferring from the Berkshire centre of the same charity.

Despite numerous visits and being put on reserve several times, Zen has still not found a new owner.

Staff at the rescue centre hope the “goofy, fun loving, handsome” Staffy can finally find love this Valentine’s Day.

Watford Observer:

Zen enjoys walks or time at home lazing on the sofa

TV dog trainer Jo-Rosie Haffenden from the School of Canine Science made several pleas for Zen on social media after meeting him in 2017.

She said: “Zen is a dream. A dream who deserves a home.”

NAWT Watford centre manager, Jackie de Friez, added: “Zen is an older dog and despite having a lot of interest, we just haven’t been able to secure him a home.

“He’s just a goofy, fun loving dog that wants an owner who is home most of the time.

“More than anything, Zen wants to spend time with you. He can be a bit clumsy but he’s sure to keep you laughing.

“We’re not sure what else we can do for Zen, but we’ll never give up.”

Zen’s ideal owner would be “retired and experienced with dogs” and he needs to be the only pet in the home and but could live with children aged 12 and over.
