Battersea Dogs & Cats Home takes in hundreds of dogs and cats each year, but staff were taken aback when an unusually long-eared arrival came through their doors.

When a dog digs in the garden they often get into trouble with their owner, but in Wiltshire recently a dog got into trouble of a more serious nature. The dog in question, a terrier, dug so enthusiastically that he got entangled in the neighbouring house’s foundations.

The Pug in this video is Marsha and we have an interview coming up with her owner, who took her form being overweight and out of shape to whizzing around the agility course. Amazing.

Take care,

Julie xx
