Puppy abandoned in toilet block has found a new home

After being abandoned in a toilet block in Petersfield, Heath the cocker-spaniel puppy has been re-homed!

The 8-week-old puppy was found near a public toilet block on Petersfield Heath on the 10th January.

The picture of the adorable puppy, which was placed on East Hampshire District Council's website and social media sites, attracted more than 15,500 views and the dog warden team were inundated with calls with families wanting to re-home him.

He has now been placed with a loving family in East Hampshire, who is an experienced dog owner and who has fostered rescue dogs in the past.

Dave Griffiths, EHDC dog warden said, "We would like to thank everyone for their interest in Heath, he certainly has attracted a lot of attention.

"We are very careful to match up dogs with suitable owners and we are lucky to have found such an experienced dog owner to take him in."
