A dog named after gold medal winning, Winter Olympian Lizzy Yarnold is hoping to find a new home, after being abandoned at a bus stop.

Staff at the Dogs Trust in Newbury are hoping Lizzy, a one-year-old Terrier, will find a brand new home.

Jenny Hopkins, Assistant Manager said, "We were shocked to hear that Lizzy had been abandoned at a bus stop, especially with all the flooding we have had.

"Luckily, this hasn't affected Lizzy's spirit and she is still a lovely little lass who loves to make friends with everyone she meets.

"As she is still a youngster, she would benefit from a home where she can continue her training and learn impeccable manners."

If you think you could give Lizzy a new home, please get in touch with Dogs Trust Newbury on 01488 658 391.
