Dolly Offers To Adopt Abandoned Glasto Dog

Dolly Parton has offered to adopt an elderly, white dog found abandoned in a tent after the great Glastonbury clean-up.

The big-hearted singer said she would take the lurcher home to America if her owner is not found.

The dog was named Dolly after the American country star, who headlined the music festival last weekend.

Workers found her after thousands of festival-goers left the site in Somerset, and took her to the nearby Happy Landings animal shelter.

Parton, 68, said: "I had my manager call the Happy Landings animal shelter to make sure the dog is being treated and cared for properly.

"At this time, nobody has claimed the dog and the dog is in great hands at the shelter.

"I will take the dog home to America if nobody claims her within a reasonable amount of time."

Talking about the dog, Happy Landings said Dolly is a "sweet-natured older lady" who arrived with a "serious ear infection".

The shelter has received a number of calls from the public after the dog's plight emerged.
