Meet, Dennis The Cute Cross-Eyed Collie As He Celebrates His One Year With His New Owners


The former rescue center collie was overlooked by hundreds of potential owners because of his cross-eyed appearance - caused by a condition called strabismus.

His previous owner had to give up Dennis because they could no longer look after him, but he was then adopted from the Dogs Trust in Kenilworth, Warwickshire by Liz Parkes.

They have just celebrated their first year together as a family along with Liz’s partner Nathan Bates and the couple’s other dog, Milo.

Ms Parkes, an ambulance support officer from Oldbury, West Midlands, said: “Dennis has settled in really well and we absolutely adore him, he is the best of friends with our dog Milo and definitely one of the family - we already can’t imagine life without him.

“He seemed like a real character when we first met him at Dogs Trust and he has certainly lived up to this.

“His slightly comedic cross-eyed looks really suit his cheeky personality.

“There is never a dull moment when Dennis is about, he is always up to mischief and we absolutely wouldn’t have him any other way.”

Helen Barlow, from the Dogs Trust in Kenilworth, said: “Some people will overlook any dogs that have a slight health problem or appear different, and even with his striking good looks and fun personality Dennis was often passed by, so we are so delighted that he has finally found such a fantastic home.

“He is a super dog and we all became very attached to him when he was at Dogs Trust, so it is wonderful for us to see him enjoying his first year in a happy home, looking cross-eyed at his anniversary cake, surrounded by a loving family.”
