Two dogs that were saved from a life of being locked outside and kept as hunting dogs are now searching for a safe and loving home.

Mia and Bluebell are being fostered in King's Lynn with the Norfolk Greyhound Charity.

The dogs, described as mixed breed 'sighthounds' are between two and four years old.

Mia was found with a huge gash in her leg and was taken for emergency medical treatment by a charity in Romania.

Her previous owner returned to the hospital and asked to take Mia back as he planned to sell her and his other dog, Bluebell, to a hunter.

Hayley Pattrick, owner of Norfolk Greyhound Rescue, said: "If they'd been sold to the hunter they would have been chained up and kept outside the whole time with no human contact.

"Because of Mia's injury, there's a high possibility that she would be chained up and left there as she would be no use as a hunting dog."

Hayley and Richard Pattrick started Norfolk Greyhound Rescue in 2016 to give racing dogs a chance to find a stable and loving home after working in the industry.
