But Cleo’s luck changed when Lesley Boath from Biggin Hill visited Battersea Brands Hatch. Lesley was looking for another canine companion, after her previous dog Cody passed away earlier this year. She explains: “I have always rehomed old rescue dogs, as that is where my heart is. I hated not having a dog around. When I saw Cleo on the Battersea website I fell for her, and had to go and meet her.”
Cleo is now settling in to her new home, and enjoys exploring Lesley’s 160 ft garden. “She is a very lucky girl as we also back onto a park, so there are lots of lovely places to walk. I have already discovered she loves cups of tea, and she gets very excited whenever I offer someone a cup. I am really looking forward to getting to know Cleo more, and having lots of happy times together,” Lesley adds.
