Six-year-old Lily, who lost her eyes to an incurable condition at just 18 months old, and Maddison, also a Great Dane, were left at the Dogs Trust Shrewsbury in Roden in July when their owners could no longer cope with the two massive dogs.

The two dogs featured on the front page of the Shropshire Star and the search went national, with staff at Roden taking 400 calls from would-be owners.

Now Anne, 52, and Len Williams, 53, from Nantwich, Cheshire, who were the second people to contact the trust, have been chosen as the two dogs’ new owners.

So glad these beautiful dogs have found a loving home :-) just hope that some of the people willing to home these two have been paired up with one of the many others looking for a home...

This is such wonderful news. As soon as I read this it has made me smile.

What wonderful homes these two will have now with their new owners. Having seen these two gorgeous dogs at Roden we have followed their progress closely.

Amazing for these two new owners to have such great hearts and take on these adorable dogs. I wish them all every happiness
