An emaciated dog who was so skinny he couldn’t stand has now recovered and found his forever home after being abandoned in January this year.
Alfie, previously called Albert, was found in Wooton Road, Grimsby with his ribs and spine clearly visible and his muscles had wasted away so much he couldn’t open his mouth.
He was unable to stand and had overgrown nails and sore eyes but now he is the picture of health thanks to the RSPCA and Blue Cross.
RSPCA Inspector Daniel Bradshaw said:
On Friday (March 15) he went off to his forever home where he will get his second chance at happiness. Inspector Bradshaw added:
When the three-year-old Staffordshire bull terrier was first rescued by the RSPCA he weighed just 8.2kg and now after being in the care of the Blue Cross in Grimsby he weighs a much healthier 13.5kg.
The RSPCA investigation continues and as it is ongoing, the charity is unable to give any further details at this time. Inspector Bradshaw thanked everyone who contacted the RSPCA and helped with the investigation.
