This is three-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier cross Buster who is the longest staying resident at the Battersea Dogs & Cats Home at Brands Hatch.
He has spent nine months in kennels - the average stay for a dog at the charity is 29 days.
A spokesman said to see Buster stay for nine months "is just really bad luck".
Buster came to Battersea when his owners decided they could not cope anymore.
They already had other dogs and were finding it too much to manage.
Michelle Bevan, Rehoming and Welfare Manager at Battersea Brands Hatch, said: “Buster is an excitable and lovely dog with a happy and playful nature.
"It is a real shame to see him still in kennels after nine months, as the best place for him would be with a family who are going to love him and give him lots of play time.
"White Staffies are sometimes harder to rehome than other colours or breeds of dog, but once anyone has spent some time with Buster, they’re bound to fall in love with him.”
Staffordshire Bull Terriers often get bad press so Battersea launched its Staffies: They’re Softer than you Think campaign to help portray the loyal, intelligent and loving side of Staffies.
