A border collie cross with odd-coloured eyes who was rejected by hundreds of families has found a new home.

Due to a condition known as heterochromia, Molly has one very pale blue eye and one brown, caused by a lack of pigment in the eye.

The Dogs' Trust, in Newbury, Berkshire, said there was no reason why the one year old was left behind "other than her unusual eye colour".

The charity said Molly was due to go to her new home in Hampshire later.

The trust said Molly, "a happy, healthy dog", was overlooked by potential owners while her brown-eyed sister Holly found a home quickly.

The two dogs were picked up as strays in Wales during the autumn before being taken to the trust's premises in Newbury.

Blue Peter's border collie cross Mabel, who passed away in 2011 after a 14-year career on the show, also had heterochromia eyes.

The condition does not affect sight.
