Janice has been adopted after waiting for 897 days.

It was an early Valentine’s Day with a difference for one dog that has been described a 'little hot water bottle' as she secured her forever home in county Monaghan.

Jancie who is a little pitbull has found her forever home in the Farney county after patiently waiting almost three years under the care of Ireland’s largest dog welfare charity. With Valentine's Day fast approaching, Dogs Trust Ireland is sharing a love story with a difference. One of the charity's "Underdogs" - an affectionate term they use for their long-term dogs has been adopted after waiting for 897 days.

Janice, a seven-year-old Pitbull cross, arrived into the charity's rehoming centre in Finglas in March 2021. Despite melting the hearts of all the staff at Dogs Trust with her adorable ways, including bringing her 'comfort toy' on her walks to help her feel safe, Janice's fear of unfamiliar men became an obstacle to her being adopted. The charity began to search for a home with a female adopter with an interest in building up Janice's confidence to give her the best chance of settling in and showing her true personality.

Then, in August of last year Thelma Boylan, an experienced dog owner, called Dogs Trust with the view of adopting a dog that had been in their care a while, one who needed extra love and attention. Corina Fitzsimons, PR & Communications Manager at Dogs Trust Ireland says Janice has found a wonderful home in Co Monaghan.
