This playful staffie at Ilfracombe Dogs Trust loves nothing more than a good kick-around and is looking for her forever home.

As England approaches the next stage of the Euro 2016 competition, one furry fotball fan is hoping to find her perfect match.

Three-year-old Staffordshire bull terrier Lily is desperately seeking a new best friend to play endless games of chase with.

The playful pooch loves bounding after a ball and is currently staying at Dogs Trust Ilfracombe where she waits for a new owner.

Like any football team, this star staffie would also benefit from a little extra coaching and she would like new owners to be around for most of the day to keep her company and continue her training.

Elise Watson, Dogs Trust Ilfracombe rehoming centre manager, said: “Lily is a fun-loving lady who just adores kicking a football around and is never happier than when she’s playing two-a-side with her favourite carers.

“She is an affectionate girl who loves going for walks and will show off her sit and paw for a nice tasty treat.”

“Lily is looking for a loving home with older children where she can enjoy plenty of fun and games.”
