Find a home for Freya

This is Freya, Britain's loneliest dog. Not only has she been unable to find a loving family to give her a home but now she has been diagnosed with epilepsy.

The six-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier Cross has an amazing 700 Facebook friends but the one-time stray from Freshfields Animal Rescue in Liverpool, has been overlooked by 18,000 potential new families who have visited the rescue centre.

Now, with the diagnosis of epilepsy, her devoted carers are more anxious than ever that she will never find a loving home.

Blood tests

Freya needs daily medication to control her seizures and blood tests every three months, and staff at the centre hope this will not put off potential owners.

Talking in the Daily Mail, deputy kennel manager Kate Jones, 35, said: 'Freya was brought into the rescue as a young stray but nobody came forward to claim her.

'She has been here many years now and is constantly overlooked, which breaks our hearts as we adore her. We do not understand why she has been overlooked for so long.

'Every year we update her age on the website and it absolutely breaks our hearts to see her getting older and has never had a home.

'She is a beautiful girl, so loving and friendly. She is our big baby.'

Kate feels that now more than ever the 'sweet' dog deserves to be with someone who will be there to support her.
