Cute

Puppy Selfies

A new campaign from the lovely folks at Battersea Dogs & Cats Home features a series of "selfies" from dogs that are currently available for adoption.

The Head of Dog Rehoming at Battersea, Rob Young says: “Sharing selfies online is all the rage and our dogs are tapping into the trend. Who could resist their cute photos – it’s a great way to promote our dogs and hopefully help them find new homes.”

Anyone interested in giving a home to a Battersea dog can also come along to Battersea’s Annual Reunion on Sunday, 8 September in Battersea Park, from 11am to 4.30pm. Entry is free and there will be 12 dog classes, agility displays, family entertainment and a whole lot of fun for the family.

  • China, Staffordshire Bull Terrier cross, 6-12 months old

    Attention-seeking China is one of Battersea’s most enthusiastic selfie snappers. She is a giggly and lively lady and will make a fun companion. China recently met David Cameron during his visit to Battersea to mark the Home’s 1000th volunteer.

  • Justine, Mongrel, 2 years old

    "Smiley Justine is one of the 400 dogs in Battersea’s care. She has been at the Home for four months and is hoping her perfectly posed picture will be a big hit on social media."

  • Maggie, American Bulldog, 4 years old

    "Maggie is Battersea’s queen of posing and has got her ‘dog face' pout down to a T. She has a beautiful face and a gentle soul and will keep her new family entertained for hours on end."

  • Milly, English Bull Terrier cross, 4years old

    "Shy but sweet, Milly is Battersea’s longest serving resident. She has spent 178 days waiting for a home, five times that of the average stay of 35 days. She adores having her tummy rubbed."

  • Pepper, Border Terrier cross, 6years old

    "This little lady is big on taking photos of herself, and who can blame her with that gorgeous face. She is a sensitive soul who is looking for that special someone who can help her shine."

  • Pete, Lurcher, 4 years old

    "Shy boy Pete is hoping that his selfie will help him find his perfect match and catch the attention of someone who can lavish him with love and cuddles. Pete can often be found relaxing on his duvet."
