Little Bob recovered and in new home following ordeal

Friday, 29th June 2012

Little Bob, one of the tiniest puppies ever rescued by the RSPCA is growing up well and is making new friends.

The puppy was found in April in the car park of a vet's surgery in Hertfordshire. He was suffering from sarcoptic mange, had a ruptured eyeball and was emaciated.

However, after getting lots of love and dog food, he now weighs just over four kilos and has a new home with RSPCA inspector Mel Fisher, who has fallen in love with Little Bob since she fostered him.

Sadly, Little Bob lost his eye. However, he has now made a friend who also only has one eye.

Ms Fisher said: "He still hasn't grown into either of his ears! But he is really clever and is learning loads at the basic training classes he's just started.

"He's also got a little one-eyed puppy friend he met at the training class called Piglet and they are the best of pals and it is so gorgeous to see them together."

The RSPCA is still looking to find the person responsible for dumping little Bob and would be interested in anyone who may have information, no matter how insignificant, relating to the case.
