An abandoned Staffordshire bull terrier that was filmed running behind its owner’s car has found a loving new home.
‘Snoop’ was dumped at the roadside by his cruel owners in the Trentham area of Stoke-on-Trent on December 17 last year.
He was found an hour later by two passersby who spotted him lying on the dog bed he was deserted with.
CCTV footage of the abandoned animal jumping up at the car’s window as the car pulled away went viral after it was released by the RSPCA just after christmas.
Since its release, the dog has been inundated with offers to be rehomed from thousands of potential owners, including US rapper Snoop Dogg.
Now , Snoop has been paired with new owner Laurence Squire at his home in the rolling Herefordshire countryside.
Mr Squire, a previous owner of another Staffordshire bull terrier, said he “bonded instantly” with Snoop when they met at the RSPCA Gonsal Farm Animal Centre, in Shropshire, where he was being looked after.
He said: “They are such a loving breed and so I started to look for another one. I contacted the RSPCA and said that I was looking for a male Staffie, around one to two years old, and one evening I was watching the news when Snoop’s story came on.
