    As rags-to-riches stories go, this definitely takes the dog biscuit.

    Weeks ago Beth the Jack Russell pup arrived at a rescue centre unwanted and unloved.

    Yet today she will be whisked off in a chauffeur-driven car to start a life of pampered luxury as one of the Duchess of Cornwall’s pets.

    Love at first sight: Beth the Jack Russell pup has been rehomed by the Duchess of Cornwall

    Camilla decided to adopt the 12-week-old bundle of fur from Battersea Dogs and Cats home in London after falling in love with her picture in an email.

    Beth’s rise to eminence is the result of a remark made last autumn when the duchess opened the world-famous animal shelter’s new cattery.


    She mentioned how much she would love a replacement Jack Russell for her beloved Freddy, who died three years ago at the age of 21.

    The dog was such a big part of her family that her son Tom last year named his own son after Freddy.


    So when Beth’s owner from north London handed her in at Battersea last month – one of more than 100 unwanted dogs to arrive in July – staff wrote to the duchess to ask if she would like to take her on.

    As she was on holiday in Scotland with Prince Charles, Camilla asked for several photographs of the black, white and tan pup to be emailed to her – and declared it was love at first sight.

    Doggone it, Bijou, you're making me think a bit better of the Duchess of Cornwall. :D

    She is a cute dog----the Jack Russell. I mean.
