Dog found in Woking still looking for his forever home

Dog found in Woking still looking for his forever home

Published by Helen Down at 6:33pm 17th June 2019. (Updated at 4:13pm 18th June 2019)

Seven year old mongrel Aidan has spent over 600 days at Battesea and he's still looking for someone to adopt him for good.

He came to the Old Windsor centre in October 2017 after found wandering the streets of Woking alone.

Aidan is currently the charity's longest staying resident, having been in Battersea's care for over 17 times longer than the average stay (35 days).

The poor pooch has found life in kennels extremely stressful, and so has been enjoying some time away at a foster home until a new family can be found for him.

Battersea says because Aidan was found as a stray they will never know where he came from or what happened to him before coming into the charity's care.

But, he has shown that he is a very worried and insecure dog in new situations.

Because of this, Aidan is on the lookout for very understanding owners who are willing to take the time to make him as comfortable and confident as possible.

Kaye Mughal, Centre Manager at Battersea Old Windsor said:

"Aidan is such an affectionate, soppy boy who loves nothing more than a cuddle on the sofa under a fluffy blanket.

"It's heart-breaking that, while 3,714 of his doggy friends have found homes, he's still waiting to find a family."

"Although his confidence has grown since being on foster, he's still looking for that special someone who is willing to show him some love and understanding.

"He's crossing his paws that someone who's willing to take the time to show him how to become a more confident dog, will come forward."

"Aidan is such a special and unique boy that he'll need an equally special owner. Although we haven't found them yet, we know they're out there somewhere."

"There is no time limit that a dog can stay in Battersea's care for, and we will continue to look after Aidan until the perfect home can be found for him."
