Snoop Dogg offers to adopt dog called Snoop

Rapper Snoop Dogg has offered to adopt an abandoned hound named Snoop, who was cruelly left at a roadside in Stoke-on-Trent in the UK.

Upsetting footage of the pooch being dumped with his bed has gone viral, leading to a flurry of offers to re-home the pup - so California-based rapper Snoop is unlikely to be taken up on his generous offer.

An investigation into the dog's abandonment is ongoing.
