MIRANDA, a three-legged crossbreed, named after BBC1 comedienne, Miranda Hart, hopes to stage fun-packed entertainment in a new home. Dogs Trust Newbury is appealing for a home for the 18-month-old, who found herself homeless just before Christmas. The three-legged lady has been named Miranda after the comedy sitcom character because she loves performing for the staff at the rehoming centre and makes everyone laugh with her antics. Just like her TV namesake, she is long, lean and full of fun – and even has the odd clumsy moment too. Jenny Hopkins, assistant manager at Dogs Trust Newbury, said: “Miranda is a bouncy, playful girl whose fun personality will make her a great addition to an active household. As she is still a young dog, new owners will need to bear with her and continue her training. “She is ideally looking for a home with a secure garden and would like someone to be around for most of the day to keep her company. “Miranda will need hydrotherapy and physiotherapy to build up the muscle in her back and remaining hind leg but, while it will take some time to heal, she hasn’t let her disability affect her and loves entertaining everyone at the rehoming centre. “Dogs Trust will cover the cost of the treatment she needs so new owners can concentrate on getting to know her and help her settle in to her new routine.” If your home could be a stage for Miranda, please get in touch with Dogs Trust Newbury on 0300 303 0292 or pop into the rehoming centre at Plumb’s Farm, Hamstead Marshall, Newbury, RG20 0HR For more information about the charity’s work please visit
