Two dogs are looking for a home together after their owner fell ill and was forced to give them up. 

Lila and Newton had lived in their loving home since they were puppies but recently arrived at RSCPA West Norfolk. 

They travelled far from their former home near Norwich due to many rescue centres being full and unable to take in any more animals.

Branch manager Carl Saunders said: "Their owner had to give them up because she is extremely poorly and made the decision to bring them to us.

"It was devastating and as you can imagine the pair are very lost and confused."

The centre is hoping to rehome the pair together to avoid "putting them through another heartbreak".
