A family from Sittingbourne have given a new home to Battersea Dogs & Cats Home’s 1000th dog of 2013. The nine week old Staffordshire Bull Terrier pup named Emerald arrived at the animal charity along with his six littermates because their owner could no longer care for them.
But it wasn’t long before precious little Emerald caught the eye of a new family, and was at Battersea for just eight days before finding a new home in Kent.
You may have seen Battersea Dogs and Cats home on ITV recently when entertainer Paul O'Grady spent some weeks at their London centre. Battersea also has rehoming centres at Brands Hatch and Old Windsor; and some of the animals want to get a job - as David Johns explains.
