SNOOP DOG’S BARKING GLAD
A DOG that went viral after footage of it being abandoned was watched around the world has found a new home.
The story of Snoop the Staffordshire bull terrier began when the the animal was dumped at the roadside in Stoke-on-Trent on December 17 last year.
CCTV footage of a man getting out of a car with the dog on a lead before the pet was abandoned was watched millions of times after it was released by the RSPCA.
The video showed the male dog then jumping up at the car’s window as the vehicle was driven off.
The animal’s plight went viral and thousands of potential owners – including US-based rapper Snoop Dogg – came forward offering to re-home the dog.
However, Snoop (left) now has a place to call home – in the rolling Herefordshire countryside with new owner Laurence Squire – and is a “regular” at the local pub.
