2-nose dog is scent to new home.

Byline: Nick Dorman

SNUFFLES the unloved dog with two noses has a new home after capturing hearts around the world.

A pet shelter issued an appeal over the five-monthold Belgian shepherd - rejected by four owners because of his rare defect.

Pamela Jackson, boss of the Dogs Trust re-homing centre, Glasgow, said: "We had 40 messages and calls before we opened plus 20 emails when we got in.

"People were contacting us from the USA and South Africa as well as Britain. Some families just turned up hoping to adopt him.

"We wanted to pick the best home for him. The eventual new owner took him for a walk to get to know him and they got on brilliantly. He said Snuffles was perfect and everything he was looking for."

Snuffles will move in next week with an East Lothian family who have a large house on an acre of land, ideal for a good romp.
