A depressed dog is in urgent need of a new home after having been in kennels for six months.

The plea to find five-year-old English springer spaniel Jasper a home comes from Ferne Animal Sanctuary in Somerset, where he is living.

The sanctuary’s rehoming manager Tara Nirula said: “Some days he just lies in his bed looking so sad – it’s heart-rending.

“Jasper urgently needs a place he can call home. Although he gets lots of care and attention from the animal care staff, he really needs a loving owner who is home most of the day as he doesn’t like to be left on his own.

“Jasper is a very loving, loyal dog who can only cope with living with one person as he gets very attached to individuals.

“He is good with other dogs, but would be better as the only pet in the home as he likes all the attention. He is a very intelligent dog who loves playing fetch with a ball and his recall is excellent.”

Jasper urgently needs someone who has a lot of time to give him plenty of love, the charity says. He enjoys human company and would make someone a wonderful companion.
