Rescue dog has had no viewings in 142 days, shelter sadly reveals

Could YOU give this rejected rescue dog a home? Adorable crossbreed with larger-than-life personality is still waiting for a loving family after no one has shown interest for four months

  • Epiphany, four-year-old crossbreed dog, staying at Oakwood Dog Rescue in Hull
  • Arrived at the centre 142 days ago but no one has shown interest for four months
  • Larger-than-life pooch needs a lot of patience and is choosy about her dog pals

A shelter has launched a desperate appeal to find a larger-than-life crossbreed dog a loving home after the pooch received no viewings in four months and a half. 

Four-year-old Epiphany arrived at the Oakwood Dog Rescue Centre in Hull on July 6, with high hopes of swiftly being adopted by a loving forever home. 

But the shelter has sadly revealed that Epiphany hasn’t been shown much love – receiving no visits in the 133 days following her arrival, Metro reported. 

Staff explained in Epiphany’s profile that the cross was shy and nervous when she first came into their care, but has been slowly coming out of her shell and is now a bundle of fun with a larger-than-life personality.

They added they hope to see her re-homed before the end of the year because living in a shelter has been a stressful experience for the adorable dog.

Will you take Epiphany? She’ll soon be able to walk on a lead, and she’s a stunning pooch with a ‘larger than life’ personality, the shelter said

‘Epiphany arrived very frightened and nervous,’ reads the dog’s online profile. ‘She has started to come out of her shell… She needs lots of time and patience to become more confident with people and show you the full potential she has.’

The small pooch cannot be placed with younger children because she is too nervous, and she needs a calm, ‘mature,’ home, the shelter specified. 

However, she would get on well with teenagers over 15, the description added. 

Staying in a kennel has been stressful for Epiphany and she can be quite vocal about it as a result. 

 Epiphany, pictured, is quite the escape artist and can climb fences. For that reason, the rescue centre said her ideal forever home needs to come with a 6ft height fence

The shelter added the pup is choosy about which animals she wants around her but could stay with a calm male dog who ‘will not pester her.’

While she’s small in size, Epiphany is quite the escape artist, and the shelter said her ideal forever home should come with a garden fence that’s at least 6ft high, to prevent her from climbing it and running away. 

And while the pooch is not used to walking on a lead just yet, she’ll soon be able to, the shelter said. 

Oakwood Dog Rescue has renewed its appeal to find Epiphany a home before the holidays on its page. 

The ‘nervous’ pooch has been slowly coming out of her shell, and the shelter hopes to find a forever home for her before the holidays 

The sweet pup has been nervous about living in a kennel and would do much better in a forever home, the shelter appealed 

‘Not only is Epiphany absolutely stunning but she has a larger-than-life personality and is a true bundle of fun,’ the shelter wrote. 

The shelter added the pup ‘loves running around and playing with toys, she also enjoys a fuss once she knows you.’

‘She does enjoy the company of other dogs and could live with a male dog and children 15 years and over. Let’s share this far and wide to help change her bad luck,’ the shelter added. 

The post was liked more than 300 times and shared nearly 200 times, giving the shelter big hopes to see Epiphany finally finding a loving home.
