Sweet pup Epiphany is having a tough time.

The shy mixed-breed dog arrived at Oakwood Dog Rescue in Hull, East Yorkshire, 142 days ago, but hasn’t had a single person show any interest in rehoming her.

In fact, she hasn’t even had a viewing in the entire time she’s been at the shelter.

The charity has now launched an appeal to find Epiphany, who’s around the size of a cocker spaniel, the perfect home. She’s in need of an owner with a lot of patience, and a home without young children, as she came into the shelter’s care ‘very frightened and nervous’.

The four-year-old dog has slowly started to become more comfortable around people, but life in a shelter causes more Epiphany a lot of stress – so it really would be helpful for her to find a permanent home before Christmas.

‘Epiphany arrived very frightened and nervous,’ reads the dog’s online profile. ‘She has started to come out of her shell but she is still shy.

‘She needs lots of time and patience to become more confident with people and show you the full potential she has.

‘Epiphany is too nervous to be placed with younger children and needs a mature home.
