Pictured: Dog rescued from burning bin in North Woolwich
With a complexion that will delight all dog-lovers in Newham, here is an upbeat Lady, just days after she was left to die in a burning bin shed.
The cheerful crossbreed looks the picture of health despite her ordeal.
Mindless miscreants locked her in an outbuilding in Claremont Close, North Woolwich before torching it and leaving her to die.
A passer-by heard Lady’s cries for help and called firefighters at about 1am on April 16. Crews from Silvertown arrived at the scene just in time to extinguish the flames and pull her out - saving her life.
Lady suffered minor burns and was handed over to the RSPCA, who have launched an investigation. After being treated, she was returned to her home in Beckton.

She said: “It looks as if she left her house and was then shut in the bin. We are still trying to find out what happened.”
