UK’s loneliest dog seeks ‘forever home’ this Christmas after 600 days of waiting

Britain's loneliest dog is hoping for a new home this Christmas after spending over 600 days in kennels. Zeke, a nine-year-old crossbreed, first arrived at the RSPCA in April last year and has been waiting for a forever home ever since.

Despite being moved from Leicester to Bawtry, South Yorkshire, there's been little interest in adopting him. Staff are worried he'll spend his second Christmas at the charity.

RSPCA team leader Daniel Cartwright said: "He's a sweet, older gentleman who thinks he's a lap dog and he absolutely loves fuss and affection."

Zeke loves walks, playing with toys, and eating treats. Cartwright added: "He really is the perfect dog, and his new family will be rewarded with a great sofa snuggler and a wonderful companion."

He admitted they're puzzled as to why Zeke is being overlooked, suggesting his age or the current financial climate might be factors.

Described as 'extremely affectionate', Zeke is always quick to come over for a cuddle.

He's now looking for a calm place where he can be the only furry friend and with kids who are 16 or older.

Daniel shared: "We work closely with other centres to give animals the best possible chance of finding a home."

"Two of our long-stay dogs that were transferred to Woodside Animal Centre when Zeke came to us have thankfully been adopted, but sadly he's still waiting."

"Everyone here hopes Zeke will find a much-deserved home in his golden years."

"We'd urge people to get in touch if they're interested in adopting him or help us by spreading the word and sharing his story."
