A fun-loving Staffie has finally found a new home after one of the longest stays at a dog re-homing centre following an appeal in the Thame Gazette.

One year old Ruby had been at Blue Cross’ Lewknor centre for two months before someone was able to take her home.

She is now starting a new life with Colin Johnson and Karen Boyle from Aylesbury.

Lisa Kent, animal welfare assistant at Lewknor said: “We’re so happy Ruby has finally found her forever home.

“She’s a lovely girl and was great with other dogs, so she became a real character and will be missed at the centre.

“We presume the reason she was here so long is because of her breed, but Staffie’s actually make fabulous pets and we know Ruby will bring her new owners a lot of joy.”
