A stray dog, who is rarely spotted, has taken a motherly role to six abandoned puppies.

The puppies were found in Walsall by Janine Jeffery, where they had been left to die.

They were taken to a local barn and given water and food, when a stray dog, known as the 'ghost dog', who is known to locals but rarely seen, approached the puppies.

She has since mothered the puppies and won't leave their side.

The puppies now need a loving home for their years to come.
