The search is on to find a new home for a dog which was hit by a car near Lichfield.

The two-year-old female Staffordshire Bull Terrier was was handed into Lichfield District Council after she was hit by a car in Hammerwich. She is now recovering well from a broken leg, but has not been claimed by her owners.

Eddie Pearson, Dog Warden for Lichfield District Council, said:

“I am keen to find this little dog a home because she has had a hard time recently, and needs a loving family to give her lots of cuddles and treats. The dog is around two years old and has a very sweet nature. I am sure she will fit into family life well and make someone a very loving pet.”  

If you anyone is interested in giving this dog a home, please contact Lichfield District Council on 01543 308725.

The Staffordshire bull terrier is just one of many dogs that are not claimed by their owners each year in Lichfield. The council displays the details of all the dogs that are found in Lichfield on their website.

The council takes all of the lost dogs to kennels in Coven where they wait for their owners to claim them. However, if the dog is not claimed after seven days, anyone can come forward to offer it a good home. If you are interested in giving one of the dogs a home contact Sunnyside Kennels on 01902 790618.

Eddie added:

“We are really keen for people to come forward to offer our lost dogs a second chance at a happy home life. If you think you can, please contact the kennels to find out more.”
