Britain's "loneliest dog " is staring to enter her twilight years but has never known what it's like to have a loving home to call her own.
Molly the boxer cross was found wandering as a stray when she was just eight months old and has spent nearly all of her 11 years in kennels ever since.
She has had no cosy bed by the fire, no owners to love her and no home to live out her days in as someone's loyal companion.
Now, as Molly enters her old age, charity bosses are desperate to find her a home, LeicestershireLive reports.
Celine Di Crocco, manager at Dogs Trust Loughborough, said: “Molly is a very special girl with a big heart and we would love her to finally find the home she deserves.
“Although she has unfortunately not spent much time in a home, Molly has stayed with me and she was the ideal house guest.
“She was perfectly comfortable with all the different sounds and smells, slept in the lounge at night and we enjoyed a cuddle on the sofa in the evening.
“She had a really tough start in life, but every dog really does deserve a loving family and we’re hoping that this Grandparent’s Day on Sunday, Molly finally gets to meet hers.”

Celine said Molly likes to take her time to get to know people, but once she does, you have a four-legged friend for life, said Celine.
As she missed out on so much as a puppy, having to fend for herself, she is understandably anxious around strangers and other dogs, so the team are looking for a quiet, calm home for her with no more than two adults and no other pets.
“She really is a gorgeous girl so if someone is looking to welcome an older dog into their lives, then she could be the one,” said Celine.
“We look after all of our dogs until the time is right for them to head home with their very own family, however long that takes, so Molly will be with us until that day comes, but we would like to think her wait will soon be over.”
If you think Molly could be the perfect match for you, call the centre on 01509 273349 to arrange to meet her.
As she has been in kennels for a long time, her new family will need to meet her several times at the rehoming centre so they can build a bond with her.
