Dolly Parton planning to adopt abandoned dog named after her

Dolly the dog

Talk about one doggone lucky pup!

The little dog above was found abandoned in a tent at last weekend's Glastonbury music festival. She was promptly named Dolly (after Dolly Parton who had played the festival) and taken to the Happy Landings Animal Shelter where they hoped to either find her owners or find her a new home. 

Now it looks like little Dolly may have scored big after Dolly Parton herself got word of the pup's plight and promised to adopt her if her owners didn't come forward. 

Dolly sent out a video talking about Dolly the Dog. 

“I had my manager Danny Nozell call the Happy Landings Animal Shelter to make sure the dog is being treated and cared for properly,” says Dolly Parton.  “At this time, nobody has claimed the dog and the dog is in great hands at the shelter.  I will take the dog home to America if nobody claims her within a reasonable amount of time.”

So far the dog, which is described as a sweet-natured older lady who came in with a now-treated serious ear infection, hasn't been claimed by the original owners so she may soon be living the high life with her namesake.
