A PUP who was found abandoned in a box at the side of the road has found love with her new ‘paw-rents’.
Terrier cross Peanut was discovered in a laundry detergent box when she was just ten weeks-old.
She was taken to the Dogs Trust in Honiley, and after seeing her appeal in the Observer the lucky pup found love with her new family, Sam and Tim from Solihull.
Sam said: “I saw Peanut’s rehoming appeal in the local press and I just couldn’t understand how anyone could dump a defenceless puppy. When I went to meet her and saw her for the first time, I burst into tears – she was just so tiny and she was a bouncy, happy puppy despite what she’d been through.
“Now she is home with us and is settling in a treat with her house mates Barney the Westie and Lily the Patterdale Terrier who are loving having a puppy to play with.
“She is one spoilt puppy and we feel incredibly lucky to have her in our lives. She is an absolute star, full of fun and we’re determined to give her the best of everything after her traumatic start.
“We’re so grateful to the staff at Dogs Trust for letting us give Peanut a home. They are true saints under the circumstances they continue to work under.”
And rehoming centre manager Emma Healey has spoken of her delight at Peanut finding her fur-ever home.
She said: “We look after hundreds of abandoned and unwanted dogs every year but it still shocks us to think that someone could abandon a puppy like this.
“We believe a dog is for life and luckily, it’s a happy ending for Peanut who we know will be very happy in her new home.”
