Meet Faith - she's Britain's loneliest dog and has spent 1,000 waiting in RSPCA kennels to be adopted.
The three-year-old Staffie is the charity's longest staying resident after she was brought into Bath's 猫 and 小狗 主页 back in 2017 by Buffy the Vampire Slayer star Anthony Head and his wife, Sarah Fisher.
The A-list couple found her as a stray, nervously dodging traffic and picked her up to bring her straight to the RSPCA.
But after more than three years as a rescue dog in the RSPCA centre, poor Faith has barely known anything else and is desperate for someone to adopt her and give her a forever home.

“She makes friends quickly and loves to snooze on your lap and play with toys. She re所有y 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 所有 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.”
Faith is a big fan of tail wagging and loves to be walked, although needs a muzzle as she struggles around other dogs.
She loves to run around, so a big garden would be perfect for her to play in.
And Faith needs a quiet and calm home with plenty of routine, although she is fine around older children.
Shecan even be left alone for short periods of time and one of her favourite hobbies is sitting quietly with her favourite chew toy.
Rachel said: "Faith will make a loving companion and a fun play friend and we re所有y hope someone will give her a second chance this Adoptober."
Faith will need a little time to settle in her new home but makes friends easily.
