The RSPCA East Norfolk hope this will be the week someone falls in love with Mario.
Mario is a Collie cross who was found wandering the streets seven years ago and taken in by another branch of the RSPCA.
He was rehomed at the time but his owners' circumstances changed and he was brought back to the rescue centre this year.
A few weeks ago the RSPCA said that he was experiencing upset at the upheaval and was in need of an owner to return the love he has to give.
This week a spokeswoman for the RSPCA said: 'Mario is still waiting to find a home, he loves everyone he meets and greets everyone happily.

'He would like a home where someone was around a lot of the time.'
Mario is thought to be around nine to 11 years old and would be happiest in an adult home. He gets along well with other dogs but he can't live with cats.

Lots more animals arrived at the RSPCA East Norfolk last week, so staff hope to find homes for those who are now fit and well.
One-eared Crackers is described as shy around people but staff say he gets on really well with other cats. They think once he is in a home and given lots of time and TLC he will come out of his shell - although will likely always be on the nervous side.
Solitaire is another timid cat who would benefit from the company of other sociable cats. She responds happily to a head rub and staff say she is slowly gaining more confidence.
Belle is described as a confident and friendly cat who would be happy in a family home. She is thought to be around four years old but is really small and looks like a kitten.
Mic is a young tabby cat who is around three or four years old. Staff say he has a shy nature as he was previously a farm cat. He has been used to living with lots of other cats and likes their company.
Cuppa was a street cat who arrived at the rescue centre in a bit of a state. Staff say he is now feeling much better and ready to find a home of his own.
Midnight is looking for an adult home and she would probably prefer to be the only cat. She is confident and friendly but does like her own space at times too.
Lacey can become very easily scared and is looking for a quiet home where she's given the time she needs to settle in with no demands put on her. Staff say an adult home with no other pets will suit her best.
Athena is a large grey cat aged around 11 years old. She has previously lived with dogs who she loved, but she doesn't like other cats.
Patch is an older cat aged around 12 years old. Staff say he never stops purring, loves company and prefers to spend most of his time indoors sitting on a lap.
Valentino the rabbit will need a large spacious new home with a neutered female rabbit for company.
