When he was found wandering the streets alone, poor Dudley was scared and in terrible pain.
The English bull terrier could barely see a thing due to a horrific eye infection which had been left untreated and was suffering with sore skin and paws, as well as struggling to hear.
It’s thought his previous owner had abandoned him, probably unable to afford the veterinary bills to treat the poorly five-year-old dog.
But watching him now happily bound around the garden of his new home and curl up on the sofa between his doting owners, it’s clear that this once neglected boy knows he has now found real love.
After successful treatment for his health issues and nearly three months at Blue Cross’s Tiverton rehoming centre, Brendan Burr and Karen Hallett, from Bristol, took him home on New Year’s Day.
