Parton commits to give abandoned Glasto dog a home

Dolly Parton has said she’ll adopt a dog left behind at the Glastonbury Festival if no one comes forward to claim ownership. And given said dog was reportedly left in a hot tent with no water and an ear infection, the chances her former owner’s done a runner seem quite high. Perhaps next year the uber-fest will have to run a “please don’t leave your tent behind, and if you do, make sure you take any pets with you” campaign.

Having heard that clean-up workers had discovered the abandoned dog and named her Dolly after the country star’s headline grabbing performance at the festival last month, Parton told reporters: “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 her home to America if nobody claims her within a reasonable amount of time”.

Claims that Dolly the dog had been seen lip syncing her barks and howls since arriving at Happy Landings have been firmly denied.
