A rescue dog named Banksy that recreated works by the graffiti artist as part of an appeal to find a home has finally found one.
The young Staffordshire Bull Terrier became known for his artistic works but staff at the Bristol Animal Rescue Centre had struggled to find a forever home.
Having gone through several homes and generally having a rough start at life, Banksy - nicknamed Barksy - will now live out his days with new owners Wayne and Jane in the countryside.
Rescue workers had previously been inundated by offers to house him – but said that the artistic dog needed an especially consistent, stable home to really thrive in a household without children.
A spokesperson for the rescue center said: "The two of them came down many times to visit Banksy in preparation for him going home with them. They really put in the hours to get to know him, and it's paid off.
"He is now very chilled and settled in his new home, and we couldn't be happier for him.
"Thanks to everyone who has followed his journey and supported him over the past 18 months, especially Robin, our volunteer dog walker, who spent many happy times with him."
