Thrown out with the rubbish
It wasn't the best start to life for a litter of puppies found abandoned in a litter bin. But, luckily for them, we took them in and found them forever homes.
The mastiff-cross pups were found in a bin by children on March 6 in Queensferry, Deeside. The babies were so young some of them still had umbilical cords attached.
They - Brenda, Roxy (now renamed Lady), Willow, Jonny (now known as Kai), Tinker (nicknamed Lula Tink), Spud, and Snippet (now called Buddy) - are now thriving in their new homes.
