DOLLY Parton is planning to adopt a rescue dog found at Glastonbury.

The '9 to 5' hitmaker, who performed in front of 150,000 people at the music festival last weekend, wants to take the white lurcher back to the US with her if the original owner doesn't come forward soon.

The pooch, who has been named Dolly in honour of the singer, was found on Tuesday (01.07.14) by workers cleaning up the site after the five-day event at Worthy Farm, Somerset, England, and is currently in a nearby animal shelter.

But the 68-year-old star said: "I had my manager Danny Nozell call the Happy Landings Animal Shelter to make sure the dog is being treated and cared for properly.

"At this time, nobody has claimed the dog and the dog is in great hands at the shelter. I will take the dog home to America if nobody claims her within a reasonable amount of time."

The 'Blue Smoke' singer also said: "I was sad that someone left the little dog behind. How could that be? In them meantime everybody is on top of it and have promised they'll take care of that little dog. I feel honoured and flattered that they have called her Dolly."
