Football loving pup looks to win her perfect match!

With the Euro 2016 competition in full swing, staff at Dogs Trust Ilfracombe are appealing to dog-loving football fans to help a very special four-legged furry footie fan find her perfect match.

Three-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier Lily loves displaying her football skills in the park and is desperate to find a new best friend to play endless games of chase with. The playful pooch can’t resist bounding after a ball and a football is always her top choice so a home with a secure garden is a must.

She is looking to win her perfect match in a sport-loving household so she can enjoy the final from the comfort of a cosy sofa in a loving home of her own. Like any football team, this star Staffie would also benefit from a little extra coaching and she would like new owners to be around for most of the day to keep her company and continue her training.

Elise Watson, Dogs Trust Ilfracombe Rehoming Centre Manager explains: “Lily is a fun-loving lady who just adores kicking a football around and is never happier than when she’s playing two-a-side with her favourite carers. She is an affectionate girl who loves going for walks and will show off her sit and paw for a nice tasty treat!”

“Lilly is looking for a loving home with older children where she can enjoy plenty of fun and games. She is such a superstar and we really hope the time will soon come for her get a new home in the back of the ‘net!”
