The loneliest dog in the UK is still looking for a new home more than 500 days after he was taken in by an animal shelter.
Charlie – a nine-year-old crossbreed – is searching for a forever family having been housed at the RSPCA Brent Knoll Animal Centre in Somerset since September 2021.
The adorable pooch, who is described as shy but sweet, craves companionship, contact and cuddles on sofas.

Andy Cook, Behaviour & Welfare Advisor at RSPCA North Somerset Branch, said: "It's safe to say that this boy is a special lad and is the team’s favourite. He is loving life at RSPCA Brent Knoll Animal Centre and joins the team every morning for tea break.
"However, as much as we all adore Charlie, we would love nothing better than to see him in a wonderful new home. He’s such a playful and affectionate dog who deserves to find his special place in someone’s heart and home.
"We can’t understand why he’s not yet been adopted and really hope that someone out there will give this gorgeous rescue dog the second chance he needs."
Charlie came to the shelter after living in a home where there was domestic abuse and aggressive confrontation.
Due to this, he can sometimes be worried by unfamiliar people, especially men, but loves being around people once he gets to know them.

Alongside cuddles, Charlies also loves playing and his squeaky toys too.
The charity said his ideal home would be an adult only home, or a home with older children of a secondary school age.
He is also looking for an experienced owner who can help with his anxieties and give him a chance to build his confidence.
Charlie is anxious around dogs so would like to enjoy a life where he can be exercised away from other dogs.
