Former 'N Sync star Lance Bass is helping a four-legged, one-eyed friend find a new home by posting a photo of a stray dog called Buddy on his Instagram.com page.

Bass has fallen for the rescue pooch and now he is helping shelter bosses rehouse the animal, even offering up "tons of fun presents" to whoever finds "a great home for him", telling fans, "Yes he has one eye! So cool!"

Animal lovers interested in finding Buddy a permanent home have been asked to email Bass via his SiriusXm satellite radio show.
