A rottweiler at Battersea Dogs and Cats Home has finally found a new home after a media campaign to find a new owner. Staff at the home believed that Bless wasn't being adopted because of her sad expression. But after her plight was reported in the media, Geoff and Sylvia Shoesmith from Chelmsford volunteered to take her in.

Bless spent five months at the Home after being found wandering on the street. Despite her mournful expression, staff said she is an easy-going character and is well-behaved.

She’s fantastic, I can’t fault her. She’s got that sort of face that never gives much away – but as soon as you put your coat on and it’s time to take her out, then she positively bounces!

– Geoff Shoesmith, Bless's new owner
