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.
Dog owners are being warned about the dangers of taking their pets for walks on the fells in Cumbria in hot weather.
Wasdale Mountain Rescue Team say they were called to an incident last weekend in which two dogs died because of hot conditions in the Lake District.
They are urging people to consider how capable their pets are, and not to take them too far in warm conditions.
This was not a case of deliberate cruelty but certainly a serious error of judgement on the part of the family involved who were obviously distressed themselves by the outcome. I have two Border Collies, born and bred in this valley and I won't take them high or far in this weather because I know their limitations, but a loyal dog will follow its owner anywhere. Having a dog is not matter of ownership it's a relationship and people should be aware of what their pets are or are not capable of.
