Dogs show their 'selfies' to find new homes
The ‘selfie’ craze has gone barking mad at here at the Home as our homeless hounds attempt to find new homes.

Savvy dogs at the world renowned animal rescue have turned their paws to the latest photo taking phenomenon by taking paw-fect self-portraits of themselves.
They are hoping that this will catch the attention of potential owners so they can work on their posing with new owners.
Rob Young, Head of Dog Rehoming at Battersea says: “Sharing selfies online is all the rage and our dogs are tapping into this trend. Their photos are very cute and it’s a great way to promote our dogs and help them find a second chance.”
This is Pepper, a six-year-old Border Terrier cross. 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.
Attention-seeking China is a six to 12 month old Staffie cross. She is one of Battersea’s most enthusiastic selfie snappers. She is a giggly and lively lady and will make a fun companion.
Two-year-old Mongel 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.
American Bull Dog Maggie is Battersea’s queen of posing and has got her ‘dog face' pout down to a T. This four-year-old girl has a beautiful face and a gentle soul and will keep her new family entertained for hours on end.
Four-year-old Pete the Lurcher is a shy boy so he's 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.
English Bull Terrier Milly is Battersea’s longest serving resident. This four-year-old girl has spent 178 days waiting for a home, five times that of the average stay of 35 days. She adores having her belly rubbed.
