Video: Pocket-sized pup handed to RSPCA was so cold and hairless officers made him a jumper - out of children’s SOCKS

Have your say

The tiny Chinese crested Chihuahua cross named Arthur is being nursed back to health after he was handed over to RSPCA officials with a body temperature so low he had hypothermia.

The animal charity, who took care of the pooch when he was just six-weeks-old is now warning future pet owners to be wary of taking on animals when they are too young. The now eight-week-old puppy, who weighs just 600 grams and stands at four inches tall, is making a full recovery at the RSPCA centre in Chobham, Surrey.
