Dogs Trust Ilfracombe is appealing to dog lovers in Devon to rehome an overlooked resident who bears a striking resemblance to a Harry Potter character.

With her unusual elf-like ears, slim physique and long nose, staff at the rehoming centre have noticed that Frida the Lurcher is a doppelgänger of the Harry Potter character, Dobby the house elf.

Dogs Trust Rehoming Centre Manager, Elise Watson, said:

"Frida bears an mysterious likeness to Dobby from Harry Potter, with her large, elf-like ears and wide, almond-shaped eyes."

"She’s really popular amongst canine carers here at the rehoming centre but we’re all hoping she finds her magical ending very soon and somebody will come forward to offer her that happy ever after."

"Frida can be slightly nervous at first, but quickly becomes affectionate, playful and loyal once she knows you. She would love to be the only dog in the home but can live with older children."
