Battersea’s Loneliest Pets Searching for Love this Valentines Day

09 February 2015
Battersea Dogs and Cats Home

UK - Battersea Dogs & Cats Home has identified its most ‘undateable’ dogs and cats that are simply looking for someone to love them this Valentine’s Day – spots and all.

From feisty felines to deaf Dalmatians, Battersea cares for around 9000 dogs and cats of all shapes and sizes each year. Sadly some animals find it more difficult to find a home than others despite Battersea’s best efforts, so these undateables need some help in finding their perfect match.

Name: Baloo
Age: 4 years old
Breed: Shar-Pei
Looking for: Someone that won’t judge a book by its cover
About me: I might not be the handsomest man in kennels, but I’m a sweet natured guy that stands out from the crowd. I love people and other dogs and need a constant companion to shower me with love and affection. I’ll make the perfect family pet, I just need someone to give me the chance.

Name: Bobby
Age: 2 years old
Breed: Mexican Hairless
Looking for: An accepting acquaintance that’s a smooth talker
About me: Those who say I can’t let my hair down are talking balderdash! I may look unusual but it’s a good way to break the ice while out on a walk. Although I can be a tad self-conscious, it doesn’t take long before my energetic side comes out and I can bare-all – literally. I’ll be the most loyal canine companion for an experienced dog lover.

Name: Geoffrey
Age: 1 year old
Breed: Dalmatian
Looking for: Someone special that’s fluent in sign language
About me: I’m completely deaf, so I’m looking for a forever friend that can sign the night away. Don’t try shouting at me across the park - I don’t have selective hearing I just can’t hear at all! I need someone that will understand my needs and have plenty of time for long, albeit silent, walks.

Name: Donald
Age: 4 years old
Breed: Chihuahua
Looking for: A confident companion with a world of experience
About me: I’m a small dog with a big personality and will definitely keep my loved one on their toes. I’m a bit complicated, but don’t give up on me and you’ll see that I’m full of fun and am just a cheeky Chihuahua at heart. I’m seeking one of those experienced dog owners out there.

Name: Sandy
Age: 8 years old
Breed: Domestic Short-Hair
Looking for: A quiet life with someone that doesn’t mind a cowardly lion
About me: I’m a shy older gentleman who gets nervous in new situations, so it takes me some time to feel brave enough to show my true colours. Looks aren’t important to me, even though I do have blurry eyes, but they’ll become clear if it’s love at first sight. I’m looking for someone that enjoys a calm and gentle approach.

Name: Ollie and Susie
Age: 10 years old
Breed: Domestic Short-Hair
Looking for: Committed companions that won’t abandon us
About us: We’re an older pair that wants to spend our twilight years in luxury. After being abandoned by our previous owner, we’re looking for someone to give us double the love and treats we deserve. They say black cats are bad luck – we’ll show you this isn’t true.

Name: Charlie
Age: 6 years old
Breed: Domestic Short-Hair
Looking for: The non-judgemental type that will keep me indoors
About me: I’m looking for a special home that can keep me confined to the indoors. I have a medical condition called FIV – but not to worry this won’t impact our friendship whatsoever. I can still live a long and happy life, giving you all the love you deserve. I’m a friendly chap that craves affection – take a chance on me and you’ll have a lap cat for life.
