Dog facing fourth Christmas in kennels is asking Santa for a new home

A loving home has been on one lurcher’s Christmas list for the past four years.

Sue has spent almost her whole life in RSPCA care and is now facing another Christmas in kennels.

During her time at the shelter, adorable Sue has watched 1,000 of her canine friends go to their forever homes – leaving her behind.

So the sweet four-year-old pooch has now penned a letter to Santa Paws asking for a new home. 

Sue was rescued from the Bath area and arrived at the RSPCA’s Bath Cats and Dogs Home on August 22 2017. 

She was given a glimmer of hope in 2018 when she was rehomed for a short period – but unfortunately the canine was brought back to the shelter when the adopter’s circumstances changed.

Staff say Sue is a ‘sweet and clever pup’ who can get a little overexcited, so would benefit from owners who can continue her training. 

She loves to chase things, so walks on a lead with a muzzle unless she’s in a secure field – so any new owner will also need to be confident taking this muzzle on and off.


Sue also loves affection and to curl up on the sofa with you and is friendly with other animals – but would probably be best-suited to an adult-only home where she is the only dog.

The pooch is also very intelligent and has already mastered the basics of ‘sit’ and ‘paw’ – and can no doubt pick up more with some training. 

Rachel Jones, the chief executive of Bath Cats and Dogs Home, said: ‘We’re at a loss as to why poor Sue hasn’t been rehomed.

‘We all absolutely adore her and love taking her out for long walks and giving her lots of attention but we’re desperate to find her her own home.

‘We believe Sue is around four so she was just a youngster when she came into our care and has spent her whole life with us. 

‘It really is time that she makes a fresh start with a lovely new family who can finally show her the love and security that she deserves.’

Sue’s letter to Santa Paws:

Dear Santa

All I want for Christmas is a new loving forever home!

My pals here at Bath Cats and Dogs Home are such a lovely bunch and I get lots of cuddles, treats and walkies.

But I have been here since 2017 (with one short break) and the thing I would love more than anything else is my very own special person and a nice comfy sofa where I can put my paws up!

I can’t live with other animals or children but I am loving, clever and friendly and I would make the right person an awesome pet!

Lots of love and licks

Sue xx

Staff say that while Sue has some challenging behaviours, she is a big softie at heart.

This good girl is most definitely on Santa’s nice list – so hopefully a loving new owner is in the stars for 2022.
