IT has certainly turned out plum again for Plum.
The five-year old cross had been dumped in an expat’s garden in Ronda last Friday and spent a cold night shivering in the garden.
But luckily the quick-thinking British owners recalled how another local couple had mentioned that they were thinking of getting a dog for their family having recently emigrated here.
And bingo! Plum now has a happy home with new owners, Andrew and Lisa Sanders, and their three daughters, Madeleine, 9, Matilda, 7, and Jemima, 5, are delighted with her.
“She just seemed perfect. The girls wanted a small dog like her to play with,” said Lisa.
Despite having a chip the local vet has yet to locate her owner and believes that she has been dumped for financial reasons.
Added Lisa: “I have seen people who obviously love their pets but cannot afford to keep them because of the recession.”
