A huge 6ft mastiff dog the size of a human who has been in a rescue center for most of his life has finally found a forever home.
The 130 lb pup named Basher has always struggled to find an owner because of his massive size.
Two-year-old Basher was rescued as a small stray in January 2020 - but quickly grew to be an impressive 6ft when standing on his hind legs.
He had since been living in RSPCA Cornwall kennels in England- until his new owner picked him up this month.
The RSPCA tweeted: "We said the fondest of farewells to our big boy Basher recently as he's set off for his new home.
"We're so grateful to Basher's owner for taking him on, we know you'll be so happy together."
It will be second time lucky for the gigantic mastiff, who was adopted for a short period of time last November - but that owner couldn't cope and returned him.
This time round Basher will have seven acres to play in and "lots of dog friends."
Basher has been described as "one of the most handsome, loving dogs there is" who "can get a bit excited when he sees birds" and "loves a good cuddle and a good fuss."
Nicole Doige from RSPCA Cornwall, said: "He's one very happy dog at the moment.
"He was with us a long time and he was part of the family, but it's great to see him in his new home."
Basher's adoption comes at a time when rehousing animals is particularly difficult.
"We are incredibly busy, demand for kennel space has gone up with the cost of living," Doige said.
"It's generally due to the cost of living, with rising bills and people working longer hours to pay the bills.
"We have lots of puppies coming in because people can't sell them."
