A quirky pooch is hoping to eye up a new home after being rejected by hundreds of potential owners – because he has different coloured eyes.
Fiver-year-old Mickey is a sweet natured Lurcher who has been in the Dog Trust’s rehoming centre in West London for over six months.
But during his time at the home the unlucky dog has had a woof time as he has watched plenty of his furry counterparts find loving homes of their own.
Even near identical dogs with generic matching eyes have found homes while Mickey has waited patiently for his furry-tail ending.
Now staff believe that Mickey’s unusual glassy blue eye must be the reason that he is constantly overlooked.
Mickey is a happy healthy dog but was born with one blue eye, simply due to less pigment, and a brown eye.
The condition is known as Heterochromia in humans and it doesn’t affect his sight.
The team at Dogs Trust Harefield, London, are now hoping that a new owner will go starry eyed over Mickey and give him the loving home he deserves.
Richard Moore, Rehoming Centre Manager at Dogs Trust Harefield said: “Mickey is a fun- loving, cheeky and affectionate character with a fantastic personality and we are baffled as to why so many people have overlooked him since he has been with us.
“Sadly we find some people will overlook dogs with the slightest quirks so we hope a new owner will see beyond his unusual eyes and offer him a happy home.
“He is a sociable boy who would love to live with another dog and can live with children over 12.
“We think Mickey’s beautiful blue eye is really striking – he is a dog in a million and we really hope he catches the eye of a loving new owner soon.”
