A second Battersea puppy for the Duchess of Cornwall
The Duchess of Cornwall has found a second canine companion at Battersea Dogs & Cats Home. Bluebell, a nine week old Jack Russell Terrier had a difficult start in life after being handed into the world-famous rescue with a severe skin condition but can now look forward to a new life in the royal household.

Bluebell will join Beth, a one year old Jack Russell Terrier who the Duchess rehomed from Battersea just over a year ago. Life in the royal household is a dream come true for the tiny pup that arrived at Battersea as a stray. Bluebell had been found in a park suffering from a severe skin condition that had stripped her of much of her hair and was scared and bewildered.
Following treatment from the charity’s clinic, Bluebell has regained her hair and her confidence and is now a fun, active puppy that is always on the go. She will enjoy running around with her new friend Beth and like any cheeky Terrier puppy she adores exploring new places.
Claire Horton, Chief Executive of Battersea says:
“Once again the Duchess of Cornwall has given a second chance in life to a Battersea dog in need. Bluebell arrived at Battersea having had such an awful start in life, so we couldn’t be happier that she caught the eye of the Duchess and now has such a wonderful home. Bluebell will be an excellent companion for Beth and we’re confident she will bring a lot of pleasure to her new family.”
