‘Britain’s Loneliest Dog’ Seeks New Home After More Than 500 Days at Leicester Animal Centre

An ‘energetic’ bulldog cross has been given the disappointing title of ‘Britain’s loneliest dog’ after spending the last 530 days at Woodside Animal Centre in Leicester.  

RSPCA inspectors found 7-year-old Brodie emaciated and living in inappropriate conditions in February 2022. He became a cruelty case animal, which means he had to wait for his case to go through court before he could become available for adoption, due to legal regulations.

However, he’s now desperately seeking his forever home. 

“Staff have noticed that Brodie has gone quiet in kennels after spending so long waiting for a new home,” said operations manager, Jade Burton.

“Brodie is a clever boy who learns quickly and is toy and treat-oriented. He is a really loving boy who deserves a chance at happiness.” 

He’s described as “an energetic bulldog cross who loves human interaction”. He is now at an ideal weight, however, he is on medication to support him with a painful back.

Brodie can live with children aged 16 and over, and could possibly live with a calm female dog.

Anyone who feels they could give him a loving home is encouraged to apply for him through Woodside Animal Centre’s website at:
