A dog shelter in Hull opened its doors to a shy and nervous pup 142 days ago – and in a heartbreaking turn of events, she hasn’t had a single viewing the entire time.
Oakwood Dog Rescue, Hull, East Yorkshire, has launched an appeal to find Epiphany, a small mixed-breed dog, a new loving family just in time for Christmas.
It was reported that the dog, who is four years old, was a sasu. “very frightened and nervous”But she has started to emerge from her shell slowly. According to the dog shelter, Epiphany is required “lots of time and patience to become more confident with people.”
“She is very stressed in kennels and can be vocal, she will settle much better in a home setting. She can be selective about her doggy friends, so would be best with a very calm male that will not pester her,” the pup’s portfolio read.
The cheeky puppy has a tendency of trying to escape. Epiphany’s future home would require a secure 6ft fence, with supervision while in the garden.

Epiphany may be too nervous for younger children so it would be best to place her in a senior home. Though she is not currently walking on a lead, staff will show the pup’s future owners how to do this when she is ready.
Oakland Dog Rescue shared this post on Facebook on November 16th: “How has Epiphany been with us 133 days and still no viewings?
“Not only is Epiphany absolutely stunning, but she has a larger than life personality and is a true bundle of fun!
“She’s a 4-year-old small/medium-sized cross breed who loves running around & playing with toys, she also enjoys a fuss once she knows you.
“She does enjoy the company of other dogs and could live with a male dog and children 15 years and over.”
