The wait is finally over for Wiggles the Jack Russell terrier, who has found a home in the Isle of Wight after spending more than 270 days at Battersea Dogs and Cats Home in Priest Hill, Old Windsor.
The cheeky three-year-old took a two-hour trip by car and ferry to his new home with owners Janet and Kenneth Whitehead last week.
He had spent almost eight times the average 35-day time period a dog spends at the animal home – after being moved from a Welsh rescue centre to Old Windsor in November 2012 with a chronic skin condition.
After months of treatment he was ready to start his new life with Janet and Kenneth in their apartment near the beach.
