A small terrier-cross who was found as "a little skeleton" is looking for a loving home after being rescued from a shelter in Romania. 

Believed to be around two years old, Miranda was rescued by Safe Rescue for Dogs in January.

She was found "huddled in a pen with her siblings and some other dogs", the charity says Miranda was the weak dog in the pen that the other dogs wouldn't let eat.

A spokeswoman for Safe Rescue For Dogs said: "Miranda is a submissive little girl who is desperate for love but also a little scared to ask for it for fear of abuse.

Currently being fostered in Norwich, Miranda will need the full-time companionship of another dog and has lived happily with cats before. 

She can also live with respectful children aged twelve and over.
