What happened to Lord Haw-Haws Dog? - Hamburg, Germany May 1945

For anyone who is not familiar with Lord Haw-Haw - Lord Haw-Haw was a nickname applied to William Joyce, who broadcast Nazi propaganda to the UK from Germany during the Second World War. The broadcasts opened with "Germany calling, Germany calling", spoken in an affected upper-class English accent.

There is a lot of content relating to the life and death of William Joyce both in print and on-line but there is nothing about his dog. But the Western Morning News dated Tuesday 15th May 1945 did reveal that Joyce abandoned the puppy to its fate.But as the report demonstartaes the puppy dog fared condsiderably bettter than its previous owner did!
