STAFF at Northiam’s Blue Cross animal re-homing centre are desperate to find a loving new home for Staffordshire Bull Terrier Tally.

Tally has a reputation for having one of the waggiest tails staff have ever seen on a dog.

But sadly she has failed to attract a new owner since arriving at the centre six months ago.

Maria Steel, Blue Cross rehoming centre manager in Northiam, said: “Six-year-old Tilly has had a rough time, having been found as a stray. But although she can be a little worried by new situations, the Blue Cross team feel that with patience and kindness will blossom into a more confident dog with a lot to offer a new owner.

“Tally is such a fun-loving girl – her tail is always wagging and she’ll even fetch her own lead to go for a walk. She loves learning new tricks too and can already do ‘paw’ and ‘spin’.

“She will be a fantastic, fun companion for her new owner. We really hope someone will see her potential and give her the chance she deserves soon.”

Tally’s other talents include playing fetch, and even some agility.

While at the Northiam centre, Tally has also been building up her confidence meeting other dogs, but most of all, she loves people.

If you think you can offer lovely Tally the home she has been waiting for so long, call the Blue Cross rehoming centre in Northiam on 0300 777 1510 or visit to find out more.

The Blue Cross pet rehoming centre in Northiam has been helping homeless and abandoned pets across Sussex and Kent since the late 1960s. The centre finds loving new homes for hundreds of cats and dogs every year.
