Abandoned puppy rescued on Christmas Eve doesn’t look like this anymore

Abandoned puppy rescued on Christmas Eve doesn’t look like this anymore

Pudding, a shih zhu puppy from Plymouth, England, was abandoned the night before Christmas Eve.

Left out unsheltered as a terrible storm hit, Pudding struggled but made it through the night. The storm left his hair terribly matted, and Pudding was unable to see through it, as you can see below:

Fortunately Pudding was discovered by someone on their way to work on the morning of Christmas Eve and taken in to the RSPCA, where he has since been nursed back to full health.

He’s also been given a doggy haircut and looks much more comfortable, as you can see below:

RSCPA inspector Sarah Morris said, “His nails were overgrown and he was covered in fleas. He must have been terrified, hungry and so uncomfortable, just left out in the dark, wind and rain.”

Fortunately, things look as though they’re on the up for Pudding. But, this remains a cautionary tale about what happens when pet owners neglect their responsibilities.
