Dogs Trust is on the search for a mystery dog lover and expert knitter who tied two handmade woolen dolls to the gates of their Darlington Rehoming Centre.
The dolls are lookalikes of the stars of the charity's 'Special Someone' TV advert which tells the tale of a homeless hound at one of its rescue centres that becomes inseparable from a small knitted figure of a man. Finally, he finds his forever home with a two legged bespectacled friend who looks just like his much loved possession.
The pair were discovered by staff early on Saturday morning who have been speculating about who the mystery knitters could be?
Dogs Trust helps around 17,000 dogs a year find their 'Special Someone'. Now the team at the Sadberge centre in County Durham are hoping the dolls will help one of their homeless hounds, Doris, find her forever home.
Since being introduced to the woolen dolls, the 7-year-old Lurcher who was found as a stray, has taken to snuggling up to them and the team are hoping that a real-life version walks through their gates very soon.
