A 10-week-old puppy who was abandoned in a box by the roadside has found a new home.

Peanut was discovered when a passer-by heard crying coming from the box on the A446 in Berkswell.

Despite her ordeal, Peanut was not injured or visibly distressed.

She has spent a week the local kennels, and has found a new owner just hours after she became being available for rehoming.
