Dolly Parton offers to adopt "Dolly" the dog

LONDON (AP) — Dolly Parton wants to take an unlikely fan home.

"Dolly" the dog was abandoned after the country music legend's performance at the Glastonbury festival last month. The fluffy white lurcher was found after 150,000 revelers decamped the site in the southwest of England, and was being fostered Monday by the Happy Landings animal shelter.

Parton has pledged to adopt the dog, which staff at the shelter named in her honor.

"I will take the dog home to America if nobody claims her," the singer said in a statement.

"Dolly" is being treated for an ear infection at Happy Landings, which is near the festival site and is appealing for donations.

The shelter says in a statement that Dolly — the dog that is — is a "sweet-natured older lady" and that it is trying to determine her owner.
