FOR Lola it will be a happy ending to her miserable story after all.

The three-and-a-half year old Neapolitan bullmastiff is on her way to a new home near Norwich in Norfolk after Pampered Pets, a dog rescue centre sent out a plea for help.

With one eye missing and severely underweight, she was handed into the centre in Hacheston, near Woodbridge, suffering after surviving on a diet of just one fishfinger a day.

But now, she can put her cruel past firmly behind her as she is welcomed into a new, loving home, thanks to the readers of the East Anglian Daily Times.

Speaking last night Jane Lee, owner of Pampered Pets, said they had been inundated with calls from potential new owners after Lola featured in yesterday's EADT.

“We have had over 100 calls, the phone just has not stopped ringing all day, I am going to have to take the phone off the hook tonight I think,” she said.

“It has been difficult to decide, we have had so much interest, but she is going to a fantastic country home in Reepham, Norfolk.

“They have had a bullmastiff before and they have two other dogs and the time to take good care of her.”

Mrs Lee added: “I can't thank the EADT and their readers enough for what they have done for that dog, without the help we just wouldn't have found her a home.”
