A dog who was badly beaten and "left for dead" in woodland has now found a happy new home.
Alfie was so badly injured that vets thought he'd been hit by a car.
The Akita was blinded and left with a fractured skull, broken jaw and a spinal injury following the attack in Wigan.
He was looked after by the RSPCA, who say the dog "surprised us all" with his loving temper during his recovery.
Paul Gibson, branch manager said: “Alfie the Akita was found in an awful way - he was unable to stand, his face was so swollen we could not see his eyes."
Although Alfie has permanently lost his sight, he still enjoys going for walks and can navigate using his hearing.
He's now found a loving new home, with the help of Akita Rescue.
