Country singer and actress Dolly Parton has offered to adopt a dog named after her, according to the Seattle Times on Tuesday.

Dolly Parton tweeted on Monday: “Heard about the abandoned dog at @GlastoFest? If nobody claims her, I'll take her home to America! Ain't she cute :)"

The white lurcher was found by workers cleaning up after the Glastonbury Music Festival in England last month. Thought to be abandoned at the festival, which drew a crowd of more than 150,000 people, the dog was discovered cowering in a tent, surrounded by rubbish.

The Happy Landings Animal Shelter took the dog in, and named her “Dolly” after the performer, who is said to be a Glastonbury festival favorite. The shelter described the dog as "a sweet-natured older lady." Dolly the dog was being treated for a serious ear infection.

However, Dolly the dog is still up for adoption, according to the Happy Landings Animal Shelter Facebook page.

“For a very small animal shelter having big news wagons parked up has caused a fair bit of disruption,” Happy Landings Animal Shelter said in a post. “I have to say all the media people from presenters to technicians have been great and very caring and sensitive in their dealings with Dolly… I would however add that PR is fantastic but what we seriously need are donations. To all of you animal lovers out there, if the Dolly story has touched your heart then please please give us a donation. Help us to help all the 100s of Dolly's that need to come into rescue. We have long waiting lists of dogs and cats needing our help, you could make the difference and change their lives forever.”
