A stray dog is desperate for a new home after spending more than 200 days in a rescue centre.

Two-year-old Irish lurcher Tori has been under the protection of Kimpton’s Blue Cross since early 2017, but is yet to be adopted to a quiet, patient home without children.

Animal welfare assistant Hannah Payne, said: “Tori came from Ireland in the early part of the year, she was found as a stray and was terrified of people.

“She would cower in the corner of her kennel or panic and try and look for an escape if anyone approached her.

“It took us a long time to slowly help her understand that humans were not to fear, this was made much easier as she just adored dogs so we’d use this as a tool, and she’s doing really well now.”

She added: “She really is the most funny and quirky dog and will make an amazing addition to someone’s family.”

To adopt Tori contact 0300 777 1490, email kimpton@bluecross.org.uk or visit www.bluecross.org.uk.

I should probably have taken the hint! Walking out into the garden recently an unprecedented flock of thirty or more crows raucously greeted me from the treetops at the bottom of my garden. Cawing and croaking these big, black birds clung clumsily to the top most branches and twigs, jostling and flapping to stay balanced in a constant flurry of feathers. There is always something ominous about crows – they are after all carrion crows, the vultures of the bird world – always watching for scraps and weakness that might mean their next meal.
