A dog is desperately looking for a new home after 240 days spent in RSPCA kennels with no interest shown in her.

Staff cannot understand why the two year old Shar-Pei crossbreed is attracting no attention but assume it is her shyness around new people that is putting potential owners off.

Kira was found straying and nobody ever came forward to claim her but since being taken to the charity’s Block Fen centre at Wimblington nobody has even asked about her.

An RSPCA spokesman said of the blue and white dog: “There is no background on her. She was very nervous on arrival and spent the first few days in her bed but once she had bonded with the staff we then got to see her real character - and what a character she is.

“Kira’s only flaw is that she is very nervous when she meets new people. She just shies away and doesn’t sell herself when people walk past her kennel.

“Kira hasn’t had a single person come and visit her or enquire to take her home.”

During her eight months in kennels, staff have taught her tricks like ‘paw’ and ‘roll-over’ and she’s also been having some fun with agility courses.

“She’s an absolute sweetheart,” said Serena Moore who has been caring for her.

“She’s very intelligent and is capable of picking up anything. I can’t praise her enough, she’s so lovely.”

Kira would like a home without other animals and with older children as she is best suited to a quiet household.

She knows some basic commands but further training will be needed as she is quite strong on lead and her recall can be a little hit or miss.

She does however love treats and will probably be a quick learner as she is still so young.

She also needs cat free home as the temptation to chase is too much.

If you could give Kira a new home, please contact Block Fen on 0300 123 0726.
