Heart-felt plea of rescue dog Daisy
Daisy the dog is all heart - she even has the shape growing in her fur.
Rescue centre workers hope the seven-month-old boxer-cross's distinctive markings will help bring her to the attention of new owners.
Appealing for a big-hearted owner to come forward, Maria Wickes, Dogs Trust Essex rehoming centre manager, said: "Daisy has only just come into us but has made quite an impression.
"She is a lovely dog and would make someone a wonderful pet."
Anyone interested in giving Daisy a home, should contact the Dogs Trust at Wickford in Essex or visit the website www.dogstrust.org.uk.
