Neglected dog with tumour lived in squalor, RSPCA says

An elderly dog with a facial tumour the size of an orange was rescued from a house strewn with rubbish, faeces and mouldy food, footage from the RSCPA shows.

Timmy, 16, was found by firefighters who forced their way into the property in Wallasey, Merseyside, after fearing "there was a dead body in the house".

The collie-type dog was found on a sofa on 25 October 2016 and his former owner has been prosecuted by the RSPCA.

The tumour has since been removed and Timmy is recovering at a new home.
