A local animal charity have provided an update on a dog that came into their care and has since been adopted.

Oak Tree Animal Charity took to social media to show how one dog, named Bella, has had her life changed.

They are urging other people to take up adoption to help other animals that may be in need.

The family that adopted Bella said: "We adopted Bella as a companion for our spaniel who was depressed after the loss of his lifetime friend.

"They became the best of pals and she gave him a new lease of life. We now only have Bella and she has filled the huge void left by our other dogs.

"She is so affectionate and greets you as if you had been gone a year, when you have just popped out for five minutes.

"She loves the back of the sofa , lying in the sun in summer or in front of the fire in winter, and her walking trips and holidays. We are so lucky to have her."

Bella has now been with her adopted family for two and a half years and Oak Tree are delighted that one of their animals now has a real home.
