At the ripe old age of 98-years-old, in human years, Tilly the Terrier is looking for a loving retirement home to settle down.

Dogs Trust Bridgend has launched an appeal to find their oldest resident a home for life "where she can put her paws up and enjoy her retirement".

Tilly is currently living at a temporary foster home having arrived at the Pen-y-Fai rehoming centre in February after her owners could no longer look after her.

At 14-years-old in dog years, Centre Manager Angela Wetherall described Tilly as "a sweet older lady" and said potential adoptive families should not be put off by her age:

"Sometimes older dogs spend a longer time with us than their younger counterparts but there are so many advantages to having an older dog."

According to staff at the centre, Tilly "loves pottering about on walks and carrying her toys around the garden."
