A dog rescue charity is urgently looking for somebody to provide a home for a dog who was left abandoned and tied to a lamppost with her possessions in a plastic bag.

Millie, a Staffordshire Bull Terrier, was found with another dog by a dog warden in Oxfordshire.

Her one-time companion, Levi, has since been offered a new home, but Shropshire-based dog rescue charity Finding Furever Homes said Millie has not been so lucky.

Andrea Newton, from Finding Furever Homes, said:

When she was found, Millie was in poor condition and underweight. Since then we have paid for all her food, accommodation and vet bills. While we are happy to continue to do so, what we really want is to find her the loving home she deserves.

She is a gorgeous older girl who can be quite soppy and loves being around people. There really is no reason why she wouldn’t make a wonderful pet, but sadly black dogs like Millie are regularly overlooked for dogs with lighter coats.

Millie is currently in Shropshire but could be re-homed anywhere in England and Wales.
