“One of Britain’s unluckiest dogs still needs a new home two years after he was found lying beside his dead owner — ”still protecting his body until the very end”.

Dillon the dog was discovered next to his owner, who had passed away —  and now needs care for himself.

The nine-year-old black lurcher canine loves walks, cuddles, and attention. He currently resides at a National Animal Welfare Trust (NAWT) shelter in Cornwall, England, but needs a forever home.

Amy Hall, a fundraising and supporter relations officer for NAWT, told SWNS that Dillon is a deeply loving and affectionate pet.

“He was found lying with his owner who had passed away and was obviously protecting him right up until he couldn’t anymore — which was very sad,” Hall said of Dillon’s history. “He came to us about two years ago from that situation, which is what Dillon wanted and needed, but we’ve been trying to find the right one for him, the right home and family.”

Dillon has had difficulty finding a home because he is still energetic and “puppy-like” at heart and wants to rush around on walks. Previous foster parents looking for a very calm dog have been unable to handle the canine’s youthful enthusiasm…”
