Lucky Dog!

That lucky dog would be Beth, a jack Russell terrier rescued by none other than Prince Charles and his wife Camilla. According to CNN, the puppy was abandoned at the Battersea Dog and Cats Home in London when it was 12 weeks old and is one of over 100 dogs that came to the shelter in July.

Camilla had actually presided over the opening of the shelter's new "cattery" and mentioned to the staff that she would love another Jack Russell to replace her much loved Freddy, who had passed away. When this puppy appeared on its doorstep, the shelter execs phoned the royal couple.

"i just couldn't resist her; she is gorgeous," Camilla told the Daily Mail after she saw photos of Beth. "It is so exciting. I can't wait for her to meet the family."

Presumably that would include one royal mother-in-law, the Queen, who has a fondness for corgis. Beth joins Charles and Camilla's other Jack Russels, Tosca and Rosie.

No word yet on whether the pup gets special meals but we imagine life will improve drastically from that in the shelter!
