Alone and afraid, this tiny five week old puppy was cruelly dumped in a dustbin.
Thankfully, the pup - dubbed Dusty - was rescued by one of Newham’s dog wardens and taken to animal charity Dogs Trust’s centre in Basildon.
Dusty was found to be underweight and had hair loss and itchy skin due to a condition called mange.
Now, a month after being rescued, little Dusty has been nurtured back to full health and has even got a new home.
Rehoming centre manager Lisa Cooper said: “Poor Dusty came to us in such a terrible state and at such a tender age.
“Because he was so young and had been through such a traumatic time we gave him lots of positive experiences like toys to play with.
“Thankfully before long the world wasn’t such a scary place to Dusty anymore and he’s grown stronger week by week. That balding, unhappy little pooch is long gone.”
