An adorable dog who waited in the same spot every day in the hope that someone would fall in love with him has finally found his forever home.
Remy – who has been described as being “the most wonderful dog one could ever wish for” – was eventually picked up by a charity that looks after unwanted pooches in Romania and resettles them in Europe and America.
A spokeswoman for the Howl of a Dog charity said Remy was spotted during one of their “spray and neuter campaigns” in a small rural area in Romania, reports the Mirror.

"He was living on the street, sleeping on the sidewalk, near a small grocery store where a kind lady fed him every day,” she said.
"Each morning he would come to greet us, happily wagging his tail.
"During our stay in the village, we tried to find an adoptive family, but nobody wanted him.
“It's possible that, at some point in his life, Remy had an owner because he has a burn scar on his nose. In rural Romania there is this cruel 'tradition' of burning the dog's nose with a hot iron in order to boost the immune system.”
Unable to secure the three-year-old animal a home in the village, the charity’s staff took him with them and put out a Facebook advert.
It read: "Remy is the most wonderful dog one could ever wish for – friendly, smart, very loving with everyone, good with other dogs, obedient, house trained.
“He's fully vaccinated, neutered and microchipped.”
But Remy still spent more than a year with Howl of a Dog.

Finally, though, a family from Charlotte, North Carolina, in the US, came forward and offered him a place in their home and hearts.
“It's been a very long journey for Remy, but he's now finally home, with his wonderful family who is giving him all the love he missed,” said the charity’s spokeswoman.
"And to celebrate his new happy life, Remy also received a beautiful new name, Milou.
"We want to say a huge thank you to the adoptive family and also to everyone who has applied for Remy's adoption.”
