Dolly, the dog found abandoned in a tent after the Glastonbury festival, will have to remain at a Somerset animal shelter for a little longer before being re-homed.

Dolly has received treatment and is recovering from an ear infection, but now needs some dental work.

The Happy Landings Animal shelter says it's received numerous calls about the abandoned dog, but will only consider rehoming her once she is back to full health. She's named after Dolly Parton who has also offered to adopt her namesake.
