Chihuahua struggles to find new home because she looks like Dobby from Harry Potter

An usual-looking Chihuahua which looks strikingly like Dobby the elf from Harry Potter is after a new place to call home.

Kendall, a tiny five-year-old pooch, has been nicknamed Dobby by staff after she has huge elf-like ears and almond eyes.

But sadly a new owner is yet to be spellbound by her charming looks so Dogs Trust have launched an appeal to see if any Harry Potter fans could take her home.

Dobby the mischievous house elf is a well known character from Harry Potter who served the Malfoy family before being freed.

Pooch Kendall caught the eye of staff after she arrived at the rehoming centre earlier this month with her best friend – three-year-old Chihuahua Winky.

The pair have caused a bit of stir among staff after they were handed into the rescue centre in Newbury, West Berkshire.

Rehoming centre manager Nicki Barrow said: “Kendall is an adorable girl who is a real wizard when it comes to making new doggy friends.

“She has been conjuring up so much love from her carers here so we are really surprised that she hasn’t yet found her perfect home.

“It’s amazing how much she looks like Dobby and just like her doppleganger, she is such a loyal, funny character who would make a fantastic family pet in the right home.

“As much as we love her here, we would enjoy nothing better than to see her potter off to a new home with the loving new family she deserves.”

Westley Pearson, director of claims at animal insurance company Animal Friends, said: “Often times we hear stories of dogs arriving at rehoming centres and whilst the majority of these dogs go on to find their forever home, it is a sad truth that a percentage remain at the centre.

“We hope that Dobby, with her unique features and mischievous nature can find her own forever home.

“Thankfully, we are now seeing an increase in rescued pets having insurance which means they are being rehomed to responsible households.”
