After 11 years (that's 77 dog-years!) of disappointment, Jenny the collie has finally been adopted. The dog, who unfortunately had the dubious distinction of being Britain's most unwanted pet, was abandoned in 1997 and rescued by the Gables Farm Dogs' and Cats' Home who - thankfully - has a strict no euthanasia policy:
Proving that every dog has its day, Britain's most unwanted pet has finally been found new owners - after spending the last 11 years in a rescue centre. Jenny struck lucky after spending 77 dog years in kennels - thought to be a British record.
She was abandoned when she was just one in 1997 when rescuers from Gables Farm Dogs' and Cats' Home found her tied to a lamppost. And each day afterwards only brought fresh disappointment for collie Jenny as her canine friends were always chosen ahead of her.
New owners were put off because she was very fearful and a little aggressive when she first arrived, according to staff. And by the time she had fully settled in, she was older than ideal because most people want puppies.
Now, after becoming the longest-staying resident in the Plymouth centre's 101 year history, Jenny has finally found a family to love her.
