Irish Comedian Gives Abandoned Laois Dog Forever Home

June Rodgers is hoping more people follow her lead.

A dog abandoned in a Laois dump covered in bite marks has found a happy ending with a well known Irish entertainer. 

Seven year old Bella was discovered whimpering back in January and --  after noticing a post on Roscrea SPCA -- comedian June Rodgers decided to adopt her. 

She now brings Bella back to Portlaoise each week for canine coaching. 

Ms.Rodgers says her new friend is quite talented - you may even see a Bella themed fitness video very soon:

She is also asking people to adopt from a shelter if they're thinking of getting a dog.

Ms. Rodgers says people should be encouraged to foster more:
