Is this Cumbria's loneliest dog?

Rocky the lurcher-cross was abandoned at Eden Animal Rescue Centre after he was attacked by a pack of other dogs.

He's been stuck there for nearly a year now, and staff say he is showing signs of stress.

They're hoping someone gives him a home, but it's important that Rocky ends up in the right kind of environment.

He's not easy to re-home because of his reaction to other dogs after the incident with the pack setting on him, and he's also scared of young children as well - his reaction is to growl and bark.
