Sophie has been in the shelter for nine years

She was abandoned when she was just two years old and staff have now launched an appeal in the hope that she won't have to spend another Christmas in the dog shelter.

They say clients often ignore her for more fashionable breeds or younger dogs - but she looks like a right cutie to us!

Supervisor Claudia Churchill was quoted in the Daily Mirror, saying: "She has mellowed with old age and just needs a calm home, without any children, where she'll be able to live out her old age in peace.

"Sophie is such a sweetheart and really deserves to have a loving family take her in."

We hope the poor pooch gets her Christmas wish and finds a new home. If only we could have her here at Reveal HQ!
