He is adorable. But surprisingly, Dennis kept getting rejected by potential owners because of his unique appearance.

Dennis was born with a condition called strabismus that makes it look like he's cross-eyed but doesn't affect his eyesight.

Dennis was born with a condition called strabismus that makes it look like he's cross-eyed but doesn't affect his eyesight.

The Dogs Trust had to launch an appeal for an owner to come forward while he was at a rescue centre in Kenilworth, Warwickshire.

Now it's been a whole year since owner Liz Parks and her family came forward to offer Dennis a home.

She said: "His slightly comedic cross-eyed looks really suit his cheeky personality – there is never a dull moment when Dennis is about, he is always up to mischief and we absolutely wouldn’t have him any other way!"

Don't change, Dennis.
