New owner for 'dumped' CCTV dog Ginger

Ginger Ginger will be rehomed following hundreds of inquiries

A dog caught on CCTV apparently being dumped in Dorset has been rehomed.

The footage, filmed in Weymouth in September, shows the animal - later named Ginger - sitting on grassland as a car is driven away.

More than 100 people got in touch with kennel staff offering to rehome the German Spitz Mittel cross.

Jenny Hadfield and Michael Hartley, who are not the dog's owners, are accused of being in the car and have been charged under the Animal Welfare Act.

Ms Hadfield, 55, from Briary Court, and Michael Hartley, 54, from Daisy Meadow, both in Preston, Lancashire, are due to face trial in April.

The dog's owner was interviewed by the RSPCA but has not been charged.

After Ginger was picked up by Weymouth and Portland Borough Council's dog warden, she was taken to Woodland Kennels in Bridport, Dorset, where she has been living since September.
