The rapper told the Daily Star the dog's story is "heartbreaking" and that there is always a spot for Snoop at "Casa de Snoop" in Los Angeles.

"If he really needed a home then he has one with us," Snoop Dogg told the Daily Star in an interview. "But I don't think there is going to be any shortage of loving homes after all the exposure he has got."

Staff at the RSPCA have nothing but good things to say about the four-legged social media hound.

"Snoop is such a lovable character and enjoys being around people and gets on well with other dogs. He just loves getting close to people, sitting between their legs and having cuddles, and is certainly enjoying lots of love and affection from the staff," a spokesperson told the BBC.

An RSPCA official confirmed that Snoop Dogg has thrown his leash into the ring to potentially adopt his now namesake. Once Snoop is ready for adoption, officials with the RSPCA said that anyone interested in giving him a home can apply via the group's Find a Pet database.
