Battersea Dogs and Cats Home has been helping some of the centre\u2019s loneliest dogs pen Christmas letters to Santa.\r\n\r\nUnsurprisingly, finding a home is top of the list for Darcy, Sally and their four-legged friends.\r\n\r\nThese dogs are all hoping they won\u2019t have to spend too much longer in Battersea\u2019s kennels, and are asking Father Christmas\u2019s help in making their Christmas wish come true.\r\n\r\nThe dogs range from Mr Scruffy \u2013 a wiry-haired Mongrel, who\u2019s hoping Santa will help him find owners who will look past his unusual hair do \u2013 \u00a0to Sally, a Greyhound who\u2019s having trouble standing out from the crowd.\r\n\r\nBecky Fisher, Battersea\u2019s rehoming and welfare manager, said: \u201cWe do everything we can to make Christmas as fun as possible for our dogs \u2013 we give them a special Christmas lunch, decorate the kennels and play carols to get them in the festive spirit. But it\u2019s not the same as being in their own home - and we\u2019re hoping these letters will help shine the spotlight on some of our dogs who face spending the festive season at Battersea, without a family.\u201d \r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nHere are some of the dogs and their letters:\r\n\r\nMr Scruffy \r\n\r\nDear Santa, \r\nAll I want for Christmas is a home where someone will love me, even when I have a bad hair day. Can you please help me?\r\nLove Mr Scruffy. \r\n\r\nMr Scruffy is a Mongrel with big smile and an adorable, shaggy hair-style. He\u2019s a high-energy Terrier who has been passed through a lot of homes before he came to Battersea. Mr Scruffy finds the world a bit overwhelming and he\u2019s hoping to find a home in the country, with owners who will teach him to be the best dog he can be.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nSky \r\n\r\nDear Santa, \r\nMy name is Sky and I have been at Battersea for 120 days, which is a really, really long time. For Christmas, can I please have a family to love me?\r\nLove Sky. \r\n\r\nSky is getting lonely in Battersea\u2019s kennels, despite the best efforts of the staff to cheer her up. There\u2019s still lots of energy left in this seven-year-old and she has many years of love left in her. She loves charging around with tennis balls and she\u2019s a very cuddly girl, who lives for human affection. If you can answer Sky\u2019s Christmas wishes, please get in touch with Battersea.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nDarcy \r\n\r\nDear Santa, \r\nFor Christmas I would love a home with a garden of my own and I would also like someone to play with please. \r\nLove Darcy. \r\n\r\nDespite her hand-knitted Christmas jumper, Darcy\u2019s finding it hard to get in the festive spirit. She really misses her old home and is hoping she\u2019ll soon find new owners to love her. She\u2019s a calm and affectionate dog, but she does have a stubborn streak and will need experienced owners to help teach her to mind her manners around other dogs. She\u2019s a very smart girl who loves people and she\u2019s going to make a wonderful, cuddly companion to whoever is lucky enough to take her home. \r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nSally \r\n\r\nDear Santa, \r\nFor Christmas I want a comfy bed all of my own and someone who will snuggle with me. \r\nLove Sally. \r\n\r\nPoor Sally has found herself back at Battersea for a second time - through no fault of her own \u2013 and this former racer is in real need of a lucky break. She\u2019s an affectionate and eager-to-please girl who loves people and hates being left by herself. Despite her gentle nature, this girl is having trouble standing out among the other dogs at Battersea. Could you be the one to help Sally find her Christmas miracle of a home?
