Thought to be Britain's least wanted dog, Jed the lurcher has been overlooked by 17,000 families since he first came to live at Dogs Trust as a four-month-old puppy.
Although two owners did welcome energetic Jed into their homes, the adoptions did not last.
Seven years - or 49 dog years - later, the lovable lurcher's hopes for adoption are fading.
But Darlington Dogs Trust hopes the launch of a fresh appeal to find him a home will finally change Jed's fortunes for the better.
One of Jed's carers, Rebecca McKeown, told Good Morning Britain, "He is absolutely gorgeous, so we can't understand why he hasn't found a home yet."
"We are not too sure why he is overlooked, it may be because he needs a specific type of home," she continued.
"He is quite a large dog as well, which can put people off, but as you can see he is very cuddly and cute".
