Happily the young female boxer cross has gone from 10kg at the time of being seized to the healthy and happy animal she is today.
RSPCA staff recently enjoyed a visit from the dog they named Spot and her new owner Michelle Gaynor of Currambine.
Mrs Gaynor renamed her Billie ‘Boo’ Bear and helped transform her from a scared, timid dog into the strong, confident dog she is today.
RSPCA spokesman Tim Mayne thanked Mrs Gaynor and her family for the wonderful work they have done with Boo.
‘Michelle has not only transformed her beloved pet into the healthy and trusting dog she is today, but Michelle has also managed to raise awareness about cruelty and neglect in the wider community,’ he said.
‘Spot’s story is just one of many cases of horrific cruelty and neglect that RSPCA inspectors deal with on a daily basis and that is why we need the help of the animal-loving public of WA.’
