Three-year-old Faith has been dubbed Britain's loneliest dog, as she prepares to spend her 1000th day in kennels in Bath.

Staffie Faith has been in Bath's RSPCA kennels for almost three years, with potential adopters showing no interest in taking her home so far.

The pooch was found dodging traffic in the city in 2017 by actor Anthony Head and his wife Sarah Fisher, and has been in Bath Cats & Dogs Home ever since.

After spending most of her life in the shelter, staff are using the RSPCA's 'Adoptober' campaign to try and find Faith her forever home.

Poor Faith is constantly overlooked because she’s a brindle Staffie and struggles around other dogs. But she’s a beautiful girl and all of the staff here love her.

She makes friends quickly and loves to snooze on your lap and play with toys. She really enjoys training and is very bright. When she first arrived she didn’t know any commands or skills but she’s picked up lots of tricks and is a very well-behaved girl.

She’s a real favourite among staff and volunteers who’ve become extremely attached to her over the years. But we’re all so desperate for her to go off to a loving forever home and we simply can’t understand why no one wants to give her a chance.
