A puppy which was taken in by Angus Dog Rescue when discovered severely under nourished has now found himself a new loving home.

As reported in the Herald earlier this month, Angus Dog Rescue took two small dogs, Patch and Snowy, from a house in the town after the owners were unable to feed them.

Both dogs were underweight with Snowy’s ribs visibly sticking out of his chest.

However, after two weeks of care at the kennels at Kinaldie, the puppies were brought back to health.

And on Thursday, Snowy, now called Chance, moved into his new home in Arbroath with owner Jacqui King.

Jacqui’s daughter, Cori (19), volunteers at Angus Dog Rescue and told her mum about Chance, and after seeing him, she just knew she wanted to take him in.

Jacqui explained: “I just totally fell in love straight away and it was no problem re-homing him. I saw him last Saturday and by Thursday he was here.

“I can’t have hoped for anything better, he has settled in right away.”

Chance is now enjoying life with Jacqui’s fellow dog Roxy and Heather Robb from the charity is delighted with Chance’s progress.

She said: “We can’t believe the difference in him from when he first came to us to now.

“It is sad to see him go but we know he is going to a great home.

“We are really happy with how he has come on and we know he will be much loved here.”

And Heather also added that Patch, who was also rescued has found a new home with a lady in Forfar and is also settling in well.
