Legendary rapper Snoop Dogg has melted hearts across the world after offering to adopt an abandoned doggo who was named after him.

The Staffordshire Bull Terrier, named Snoop, was left isolated in Stoke-On-Trent and was caught on CCTV after being cruelly deserted by the couple.

The poor little pet attempted to climb back into his owner's car but didn't succeed, and the heartbreaking footage caught the attention of Snoop Dogg himself.

He said he simply can't stand by, telling the Daily Star that there's "always room for another dog in Casa de Snoop."

The 47-year-old commented that;

"If he really needed a home then he has one with us. But I don’t think there is going to be any shortage of loving homes after all the exposure he has got."

The pooch could end up living in the Doggfather's Los Angeles mansion after the RSPCA shared the footage.

The Inspector of the RSPCA, Natalie Perehovsky, spoke to Good Morning Britain last week about the footage of the couple who unclipped his lead and ran away:

"This is heartbreaking, it’s the way he runs after the owner — he clearly loved who was there. He was obviously distressed," she commented on the ruthlessness of some owners.

She said: "I don’t know what was going through their mind when they did that. It could be the expense, it could be family changes, there’s hundreds of reasons."

"But there’s places that help people, you can take him to charities or dog homes. There’s no excuse."

Fair play Snoop, he even donates money to dog charities and has his own French Bulldog.

Adorable.

Ireland has a long history of babies being sadly separated from their birth mothers.

For Colleen Anderson, this is exactly what happened.

When she was just three years old, Colleen was taken from her mother by the church and put on a plane headed for Chicago to meet her new family.

Now 52-years-old, Colleen is desperate to be reunited with the family she never knew.

She has set up a Go Fund Me campaign to raise $1,500 so that she can come back to Ireland to meet her family and stay here. 

She was born August 4th, 1965, at Sean Ross Abbey in Roscrea to a 16-year-old victim of rape, Josephine O'Brien.

Josephine was dealt the same fate as many other girls in the 1950's who found themselves pregnant and unmarried.

Anderson said, ''the way she was treated was a source of shame her entire life."

Sister Hildegarde McNulty arranged for the 3-year-old Colleen to go to McNulty's niece, Margaret, in north suburban Niles.

Her adoptive mother suffered from mental illness, and Colleen ''left home as soon as I was able."

Colleen did locate her birth mother in 1998 and flew to Dublin, but the meeting didn't go well. 

Her mother had gone on to have four other children and had, according to Colleen buried this piece of her past. 

Josephine passed away in 2009 and her  husband, Aidan, told his children about their unknown stepsister in America.

Today, Colleen is close to her half brother, Myles, and will visit him in his home in Florida this month.

Colleen explains on her GoFundme page that she is looking to renew her Irish passport, her green card, buy a plane ticket, and raise spare funds for living expenses. 

''I want to go home,'' she writes.

Hopefully, this might help her make that dream a reality.

Less of a terrorist threat and more of terribly cute overload. 

So yesterday, Adelaide airport in southern Australia, nearly got shut down yesterday due to a bomb scare.  

Police where alerted that there was an abandoned bag in the airport's toilets and immediately sent a bomb squad in. It was all very dramatic. 

They approached the bag with carefully-trained caution, until the bag started moving…. it was a rabbit. 

A very well-behaved rabbit at that. Inside the pink Lorna Jane bag, the male rabbit was wearing a red harness, but had no other ID on him. Most have left it in his other hutch. 

"We had a hutch something might be a bit bunny when the bag started moving. Turns out there was no cause fur alarm, as inside was an extremely cute but wascaly wabbit," the APF wrote on their pun-filled Facebook page

"Don’t worry, be hoppy, the bunny is in the safe care of RSPCA South Australia and is no worse fur wear. He doesn't seem to carrot all about all the fuss. Lettuce hop someone can help find out who abandoned him at the hareport." 

Give whoever wrote that post a promotion please. 

Police then alerted the  RSPCA, who picked him up and kept him over night in a lovely warm cage. According to the RSPCA, the bunny bandit was unharmed. 

"This is the first job of this kind that I've come across in my 26 years of service with the RSPCA," rescue officer Nalika Van Loenen told ABC. "The young male rabbit is clearly very-well socialised and cared for."

While waiting for the RSPCA arrived, thr police put the roaming rabbit in a box and got him some shredded carrot from Subway. 

"We treat everything in the aviation space very seriously, but our bomb appraisal officers certainly weren't expecting to find a rabbit in unattended baggage," Commander McCann, police manager, said. "Thankfully, the rabbit is safe and well and hopefully the owner will be found."

Van Loenan explained that the rabbit may have been abandoned due to a number of reasons. 

"A couple of scenarios came to mind — his owner could have been leaving the country and knew by leaving their pet in a populated area he would be found and cared for," she  said. "Or they may have been planning on smuggling him on board a plane, but backed out at the last minute.

While the RSPCA are still on the hunt for the owners, they are "hoptimistic" about Rodger Rabbit's future.

Thank God for Aragon, the dog!

Aragon and his owner Valia were out for a walk one day, when the dog started pulling on his lead.

Not sure what was going on, Valia decided to follow him to see what he was up to, and that’s when the shocking discovery was made.

There nestled at the foot of the mountain of Immitos was a small black and white box, and Valia got a shock when she looked inside and found 25 abandoned kittens.

“We were walking Aragon near the mountain, actually planning to video on the huge number of animals abandoned there, when Aragon started pulling us towards their direction,” the SCARS volunteer told BoredPanda.

“Aragon is curious about the kittens and since the first moment he saw them, he had a constant need to keep them all together and to clean them.”

Sharing her story on YouTube, Valia explained that abandoned kittens are a common thing in Greece and SCARS is working hard to find them all a home.

“Almost every day [Valia] finds empty cardboard boxes on the mountain (sometimes with the blankets and the toys still inside), but no animals” the video explains.

“Within a few hours since they are abandoned, kittens, puppies, bunnies and even birds (no joke!) become the dinner of a hungry fox (the most common predator on the mountains near Athens).

"This time, the kittens were lucky.”

And it seems like Aragon has taken to his new role as foster dad like a duck to water.

“Basically, he was the rescuer, and he has been an excellent foster dad since day one. The kittens are ready for their forever homes.”
