A staffie was left on the shelf on a special weekend aimed at finding new homes for long term stay animals.
It was hoped Tigger would find a new family but despite plenty of visitors to the RSPCA at Block Fen everybody passed him by.
Serena Moore said: “Many animals found new families and are going home, Tigger, however is sadly not.
“We like to think that animals are here a long time because they’re extra special and they’re just waiting for that extra special someone!
“He is celebrating his one year anniversary in kennels this month bless him, but absolutely fantastic news for all of our wonderful long stays here.”

Tigger has been at the Wimblington centre for a year and despite some interest nobody wants to take him home.
Serena said: “Tigger is an energetic, bouncy boy looking for a new life with an active family.
“When he arrived with us he was very underweight and his skin was in poor condition.
“He has put on weight and we have treated his skin with medicated baths and he is now looking fabulous!
“Tigger is not currently on any medication, we are feeding him a grain free, fished based diet and he appears to be doing well on this.
“Our vet will be able to give advice about keeping Tigger fit and healthy to his new family before they take him home.
“Tigger will need to be the only pet in your household but he would enjoy walks with other dogs.
“He does prefer female dogs to males.
“Tigger could possibly live with children who are used to big, bouncy dogs. He is a very kind soul but sometimes gets a little over excited!”
Re-homed over the Valentine weekend were Fairy, Megan and Thomas the cats, Bear the dog and Venus and Orion the bunnies.
