A blind Great Dane and her very own guide dog from Shropshire have found a new home after a couple fell in love with the pair after hearing about their quest for new owners.

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.

Mr and Mrs Williams, along with their 25-year-old daughter Hannah, picked up the dogs on Saturday, revealing they had transformed their garage into a special 'dog house', complete with baby monitors.

Mrs Williams said they decided to contact the dogs trust in a 'moment of madness' after hearing about the story.

"We picked up the phone straight away and it was engaged a number of times before we got through and we were placed second on the list," she said.

"We were then invited down this week to meet Lily and Maddison and we really clicked."
