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.
More than 50 street parties are set to take place this weekend across the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and the surrounding areas.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
