Appeal to find home for dog still up for adoption after 143 days

An animal welfare organization has launched a call to find a new home for one of their dogs, which is still waiting to be adopted after 143 days.

Epiphany, a shy four-year-old mixed breed dog the size of a cocker spaniel, arrived “very scared and nervous” at Oakwood Dog Rescue (ODR) in Hull more than seven months ago.

She has since started recovering from her shell, but finding a new home has been difficult as she is too nervous to be accommodated with younger children.

She is currently not on a leash but is receiving treatment and will be able to do so soon, ODR said.

The charity promises that it has “a lot of potential” but needs an owner who has plenty of time and patience to help it become more confident.

“Epiphany is too nervous to be accommodated with younger children and needs an adult home,” the ad said.

“She is very stressed in kennels and can be loud, she will settle in a lot better in a home environment.”

The charity highlighted that Epiphany needs a home with at least six feet high, secure fences as she is very experienced at climbing.

“It proves that our assessments are not based on size, but on the dog’s risk of escape,” added the charity.

“She needs a house with a six-foot fence and someone to watch her in the garden to keep her from climbing a fence.”

In a post on its Facebook account earlier this month, ODR said Epiphany had not received a single ad from a potential owner in the first 133 days since it was bailed out.

“Not only is Epiphany absolutely stunning, she also has a larger than life personality and is really fun!” Said the post.

While Epiphany enjoys the company of other dogs, “she can be picky about her canine friends” and would get along better with a male dog, the charity added.

Epiphany has received positive feedback on social media and many Facebook users have sent their luck finding a new home.

“Good luck Epiphany, you are beautiful and deserve a beautiful home and family of your own,” read a comment.
