Dolly Parton has expressed her relief after a dog she offered to adopt when it was left behind at Glastonbury was reunited with its owners.

The 68-year-old country star was thrilled when the Happy Landings animal shelter in Somerset called to say that the owners of the lost pooch had come forward.

“Everybody feels good about it. I did not get to take her home – I was looking forward to it," Dolly said. "I was gonna rename her Glassy because of Glastonbury, I was going to say ’Glassy Come Home’"

“But [the owners] wanted her and they feel good about that and I have been very instrumental in making sure that the dog has been well taken care of all the way through.

"She’s 15 years old, they thought at one point she was seven, but she’s 15, and so everybody’s happy to be back. I feel kind of sad because I was looking forward to taking her home, but I’m glad she’s back where she belongs."
