Dumped puppy finds new home with the help of a catchy new name
A pint-sized puppy dumped at a nature reserve in England has found a new home thanks to an animal charity that came up with a clever name for the rescued pup.

The two-month-old abandoned puppy was found shivering in the freezing cold at Aston Rowant Nature Reserve near Thame in Oxfordshire. He was left with little food, some dirty bedding, and one toy.
A member of the public contacted the Blue Cross animal charity, who took him in. They discovered that a chunk of his right ear was missing, and so decided to name him Van Gogh, after the 19th century printer Vincent Van Gogh who famously cut off his left ear.
He has since been settled in a new home.
