A dog found starving and wandering the streets has been rehomed.

Readers may remember the plight of Kizzy, the Jack Russell, who featured in the Derbyshire Times two weeks ago.

She was one of 100s of unwanted pooches dealt with by NE Derbyshire’s dog wardens.

Kizzy has now well and truly landed on her paws and been rehomed by a couple in Grassmoor.

New owner Susan Gordon, of Mill Lane, said: “She is absolutely brilliant. She has put on weight and is eating three meals a day. She is such a loving, trusting dog.”

Kizzy - now called Ruby - has settled in at her new home with Susan, her husband Ian and two other rescue dogs.

Sadly Oscar the Staffordshire bull terrier who was the other dog featured in the DT, has not had a happy ending.

Oscar was aggressive when he was first picked up because of the abuse and neglect he had suffered, but improved after rehabilitation with the wardens. Unfortunately later in the week he turned aggressive with kennel staff.

A council spokesman said: “We simply didn’t feel it was possible to safely re-home him and we had to take the difficult and very sad decision to put him to sleep.”
