First of nine dumped lurcher puppies finds new home
2:42pm Wednesday 9th October 2013 in News
THE first of nine puppies abandoned in Southampton and named after characters from Downton Abbey has been adopted – by massive fans of the TV drama.
As previously reported, the vulnerable litter were discovered crying in a cardboard box in Miller’s Pond Nature Reserve in Sholing and later named after characters from the hit ITV show.
Now Josephine Smedley, her two daughters and her two-year- old grandson Ilias have made the sevenhour round trip from their home in Nottingham to collect one of the little lurchers called Martha.
Rehoming supervisor Laura Boyle revealed all the pups have now been reserved and will be going to their new homes in the coming weeks.
Laura, 26, said: “It’s been an amazing response and many Downton fans have been in contact over Twitter following our news about the puppies.”
