A pack of six-week old puppies need new homes - after their mum was killed when she was hit by a car.

The ten Boxer-Cross dogs have all been named after England rugby union stars.

Johnno, Tindall, Ashton, Flood, Wilko, Foden, Easter, Sheridan, Hartley and Haskell have been looked after at the Blue Cross centre in Kimpton in Hertfordshire since Wednesday.

Emma Pannell, the centre's deputy manager, said:

"These pups are such little bruisers that it seemed perfect to name them after rugby players."

"Like many rugby players, these puppies are going to be big and boisterous so they'd like a home where they can run around."

If you're interested in adopting any of the pups, call the Blue Cross on 0300 790 9903.
