A dog with teeth like a vampire is looking for a new home in time for Halloween.

The seven-year-old Lhasa Apso called Milo has two noticeable "fangs" protruding from his bottom jaw.

The dog has been the talk of the Dogs Trust rehoming centre in Bridgend, South Wales, since his arrival last week - especially since coming in during the month of Halloween.

Staff at the centre said that despite his appearance, Milo could not be further from a vampire and is actually an extremely sweet-natured, gentle character.

Centre manager Angela Wetherall said Milo was a friendly chap who gets on well with other dogs, walks well on his lead and loves an afternoon nap.

"We are amazed by how much Milo's teeth resemble vampire fangs - they have certainly become a topic of conversation with staff and visitors.

"He may bear an uncanny resemblance to Count Dracula but he is no bloodhound.

"Milo is missing his home comforts and is looking for a fairly quiet home. He could live with other animals or children over the age of 14 who will give him time on his own when he needs it."
