Murphy the Shar-Pei - who staff at the Dogs Trust rehoming centre in Snetterton believed looked like the Cowardly Lion from The Wizard of Oz - has found the yellow brick road to a loving home.

The three-year-old - who resembled a lion with his wild mane and big paws - was living at the centre while waiting for someone to give him a new and loving home.

Staff at the centre were working to boost the dog's confidence because he was still a little anxious around new people.
