Lovable 'Dracula' dog Mavis hoping for happy howl-oween

A GREYHOUND who is named after Dracula’s daughter is hoping for a happy howl-oween in her own home.

Sweet-natured Mavis – named after the Count’s daughter in the children’s film – came to the Dogs Trust earlier this month with no front teeth, except for four noticeable ‘fangs’.

Despite being known as the centre’s resident vampire, eight year-old Mavis is actually a friendly character who gets on well with other dogs and loves a nap after her walk.

Staff say while the pup would not look out of place in Transylvania, they are hoping a local dog lover can embrace her quirky looks and give her a loving home.

Assistant manager Emma Healey said: “We are amazed by how much Mavis’s teeth resemble vampire fangs – they have certainly become a topic of conversation with staff and visitors.

“She may bear an uncanny resemblance to Count Dracula but she is no bloodhound.

“Mavis is looking for a fairly quiet home and could live with other animals or children over the age of six who will give her time on her own when she needs it.”
