A Staffordshire bull terrier branded "Scotland's least loved dog" is moving to his new home after spending half his lifetime in kennels.
Scooby was always overlooked by visitors to the Scottish SPCA rescue centre in Aberdeenshire, because of his breed and appearance.
The animal charity launched a public appeal last week for new homes for Scooby and two other staffies, Oliver and Frankie.
They were branded the country's least-loved dogs after being resident with the Scottish SPCA for a total of nearly three years.
After an appeal to the public, more than 200 people called the Scottish SPCA to offer the dogs a new home.
Scooby, who is two and a half years old, had been at the centre for 15 months.
On Tuesday he is leaving the centre and going to his new home in West Lothian, with owner David Prokipczyn.
Mr Prokipczyn said: "My wife and I have been married 40 years and we've always owned dogs, including three ex-police dogs, a staffie and a Jack Russell terrier.
"It's only very recently that we've been without one and the house has felt so empty. When we read Scooby's story my wife was in tears so we both agreed that we would love to offer him the good home he deserves."
Graeme Innes, Scottish SPCA centre manager, said: "We were completely overwhelmed by the response to our appeal to find Scooby, Frankie and Oliver good homes.
"Our phones were literally ringing off the hook for three days solid and we just couldn't believe how many people were willing to offer the boys homes after they'd all spent such a long time in our care with very little interest at all.
"We couldn't be happier for all three dogs but we're especially pleased for Scooby, who has spent half of his life in kennels which is no way for a young, playful dog to live.
"Frankie has already settled into a new, loving home with a family from Ross-shire and Oliver is reserved to go to his new home in Moray in the next few days."
