A dog who was rescued from a "house of horrors" is enjoying a new lease of life in his adoptive home.
Woody was discovered living in "horrendous conditions" by the RSPCA in 2016, alongside his brother, Duncan, and parents, Patch and Lucy.
Officers were called to the property in Wirral after concerns had been made about the conditions that the dogs were living in.
When Woody was discovered he was "frightened" and needed treatment for a broken leg.
But thanks to Theresa Heward from Wallasey, he is now able to put the past behind him.
Inspector Joynes said:
Woody’s previous owner admitted four offences under the Animal Welfare Act and was disqualified from keeping animals for 10 years, given a curfew order and a 12-month community order.
Woody will appear in the Channel 5 Dog Rescuers show on August 22, presented by Alan Davies.
