No-one wanted to take her because they were put off by her strange eyes. Teckels rescue centre in Gloucester brought her to England to find a home.

Her fiery orange stare is certainly fearsome enough to scare off burglars. The problem is, it’s also frightening off potential owners.

Bagheera – named after the amber-eyed panther in the Jungle Book – has been unable to find a home since she arrived at a rescue centre in Italy as a six-month-old puppy. People were put off by her striking eyes, which are the result of a rare gene.

So Teckels Animal Sanctuaries in Gloucester has brought the black Collie-Belgian Shepherd cross, now eight, over to England in the hope of finding her her very first home. Alice Breaks, a senior kennel technician at Teckels, said: 'I love her, she is lovely looking and her eyes are this amazing orange colour. 'I have never come across a dog with eyes like hers before.

Phillip Robinson, Battersea Dogs & Cats Home's veterinary surgeon, said: 'Eye colour is genetically linked to the parent animals and it is exceptionally rare to see this type of pigmentation in dogs of this breed. (Source)

    i would take her if i could afford to fly her from england to the u.s. but i can't. she is a very beautiful dog and her eyes make her stand out. i would pick her before any other dog just because of her eyes. i hope she has found a home by now. she deserves to be treated like a queen.
