Stray staffy Missy has a special Christmas wish - to find a loving new home.

The little dog is currently living in kennels after being rescued by Brighton's animal welfare team - where she has become a favourite with staff for her playful nature and love of cuddles.

Welfare officer Izzie Blanden said: “She is a really lovely little dog and we would love to see her settled into a new home this Christmas.

“But time is running out as all the local rescue centres are full so we are desperately trying to get her re-homed.

“She would make an ideal companion for someone who is around during the day and can give her the time and affection she craves.”

The dog was found on the streets and taken to a local vets. But despite being micro chipped, all attempts to find her former owners have failed.
