Puppies Ella and Oscar were just days old when they were rescued from drowning in a muddy field in Cyprus.

And they will be putting their best paws forward alongside their new owners to help more animals born into a life of misery abroad.

They were adopted by families in Netherton from Cyprus Pride House - an animal rescue run by a British couple in Cyprus.

Karen Greenbank, 42, said: “There are a lot of stray, un-neutered dogs and cats in Cyprus.

“Cyprus Pride House tried to rehome them on the island but unfortunately there are only so many families willing to take them.

“We read the story of how Ella was rescued and we just had to help.

“We want to try and raise awareness of what is happening with dogs and cats in Cyprus, and raise some money to support the charity and help re-home more animals.”

Ella’s brother Oscar was also taken in by another family in Netherton.

They will take part in a sponsored walk around Pugneys Country Park on Sunday, June 9, at noon.
