A dog that ate glass and batteries to survive after being neglected in a garden of an empty council is now seeking for a new home. The bull-breed cross, Eric was regarded as the thinnest dog ever seen being alive.

Described by an RSPCA Inspector, Nina Small,  who rescued Walter from the Yard in Accrington, Lancashire in March, the dog was later rushed to a vet where he was unable to stand or lift his head.

Months later, Eric – renamed Walter now weighs a healthy 20kg after experiencing a remarkable recovery.

Speaking, a spokesperson from the RSPCA Lancashire East who really cared for Walter said: ‘He was at death’s door but presently he’s the picture of health. Walter has been in foster care and he has made a remarkable recovery, all thanks to the care and dedication of his caretakers. He is ready for a forever home.’

Also reacting, Nina added: ‘Walter is the thinnest dog I’ve ever seen being alive. All of the bones in Walter’s body were quite visible and was completely covered in urine. His nails were also overgrown.’

‘Specifically, Walter’s feces had pieces of glass and metal as huge as a 50 pence piece in it and a bit of battery. I guess he had been confined somewhere, eating anything he sees. Probably a shed or a garage.’ Nina explained further.
