An abandoned dog has finally found a loving home thanks to the tireless efforts of Thornberry Animal Sanctuary staff.

Flynn, a loveable 9-year-old tiger-brindle Lurcher cross, was dumped at the North Anston sanctuary three years ago and was having trouble finding a home due to his age.

But Flynn’s happy ending finally came in the form of a local family who snapped him up on Sunday 18th January after a desperate plea for him to be rehomed was issued on Facebook.

A spokesperson for Thornberry Animal Sanctuary said: “It is with great pleasure that after three years, we can finally delete Flynn from our rehoming folder.”

“We said goodbye to Flynn in floods of tears, but he did not look sad at all as he very eagerly jumped straight into the back of the car and laid down awaiting his journey to his new home.”

Louise Turner, whose Dad has adopted Flynn, said: “He’s really settled in and is an absolute dream. Dad is overjoyed at having him.”

Thornberry offers a refuge to abandoned, unwanted, abused and neglected animals in the region.

The sanctuary are always looking for donations and new foster and adoption homes for their animals. Call 01909 564399 for details.
