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.
