‘Overlooked’ dog in desperate need of a family as she’s showing signs of depression


An ‘overlooked’ dog at an animal welfare centre is showing ‘signs of depression’ and is searching for a loving family to adopt it.

Jem, a medium-sized Lurcher, is about eight-and-a-half years old and is currently waiting at Hull Animal Welfare Trust for someone to take care of her, reported Hull Live.

She is suitable for adoption to a home with children over 10 years old, the Trust said.

However, the charity has made a specific request that she would need to be the only pet in the house.

Describing Jem’s interests, the middle-aged pooch loves to be made a fuss of and enjoys walks and cuddles – making her the perfect companion for an affectionate and attentive owner.

She has a white, slightly curly coat and her personality is described as affectionate.

Sharing a post on Facebook, Hull Animal Welfare Trust wrote: “Poor Jem is sad. She has been with us a while now and she keeps getting overlooked…

“She is showing signs of depression and we would really love to find her a new home where she can feel secure, loved, and happy. Please can you help us to help Jem.

“She is approximately 8.5 years old, and a medium-sized lurcher. She has oodles of character, loves her walks, and enjoys lots of fuss and cuddles.

“Jem would be suitable to live in a home with children of 10 years upwards and would need to be the only pet in the home. If you feel you could give this stunning beauty the loving home she needs and deserves, please call the shelter on 01430 423986 between 11am and 2pm for more information.”
