A homeless woman from Bexleyheath is searching for someone to take care of her dog until she finds permanent housing.

Josephine Morrish, 45, of Dorcis Avenue, is on the hunt for a dog loving fosterer to take care of her seven-year-old black and white Shih Tzu, Munna, until Ms Morrish is able to get re-housed.

Ms Morrish is willing to pay for all of his food, bedding, toys and medication and just wants someone local to the area to volunteer.

She told News Shopper: "Munna can live with children, all female dogs, and some male neutered dogs.

"He needs to be taken for walks a few times a day, as well as a regular haircut every two months."

Munna, who has been neutered and micro-chipped, is currently under the PDSA and receives free worm and flea medication from The Dogs Trust.

If you want to help call Ms Morrish at 07986 231 719.
