A dog dubbed the saddest in Lincolnshire has finally found a loving new home thanks to an appeal in the Lincolnshire Free Press and Spalding Guardian.
Wanda had spent months on end fending for herself wandering fields and living rough.
She had clearly either been abandoned or lost, but no-one came looking for her.
And even after she was brought into the care of RSPCA, her sad plight continued because no-one wanted to rehome her.
But after Wanda’s sad story featured in our papers she has found a fabulous new home with Graham Molesworth and Lynn Morris.
Mr Molesworth, who lives in Moulton Seas End, was one of many people who phoned the RSPCA Lincolnshire East branch to offer her a home.
He said: “Wanda immediately caught my eye when I read about her and I knew that we just had to help her.
“Wanda is a beautiful dog and she has settled in really well to her new home. She has come on in leaps and bounds and she’s gaining confidence in herself. She became close friends with our other dog Lady, who sadly passed away recently, but we have now fostered a new dog from the RSPCA to keep Wanda company.
“I would always encourage people to take on a rescue dog, rather than just buying one. There are so many dogs all like Wanda in need of new homes.”
RSPCA Lincolnshire East branch manager, Iona Mclachlan, said: “We are so delighted that Wanda has found such a fantastic new home, and we are so grateful to Graham and Lynn for giving her a second chance.
“Wanda was one of the most desperate cases we ever had and she was certainly one of the saddest dogs we had ever brought in.”
