Marley arrived at Dogs Trust Shoreham in a very bad condition.
The two-year-old female border collie had a severely matted coat but a haircut from staff made it much more comfortable.
Tracey Rae, rehoming centre manager, said: “She is a very sweet girl. She is a favourite with the staff and gets lots of cuddles.
“Initially, Marley is timid with new people but given time and a gentle approach, she becomes more confident and likes to lean in for a fuss.
“Due to her shy nature, Marley is looking for a home with older teens. She also needs to live with another dog as this helps boost her confidence but her canine companion needs to have a steady nature to be a great role model for her.
“Her own garden is essential so she can freely roam off lead in a nice secure area where she feels safe.”
New owners will need to go to the Brighton Road centre a few times a week to build a bond as Marley will settle in much better if a trusting relationship has been built up before moving in.
