Dog Found Covered In Tar Is Unrecognisable After Being Rescued
WARNING: This article contains images and footage some readers may find distressing
Champi was in a terrible way when she was discovered stuck to the pavement in Solapur, a city in the south-western region of the state of Maharashtra.
She was coated in coal tar and debris and was struggling to move. Fortunately for her, a rescue team from Animal Rahat - an animal relief organisation supported by PETA - set about saving her from the sticky situation.
In total, it took four days for the team to remove all of the tar and debris from Champi's coat using vegetable and coconut oil, and after that her skin underneath needed time to heal.
But now the poor dog looks like she never went through the nasty ordeal, with her coat as good as new.
What's more, she has a new home where she spends her days playing with other dogs and chickens.
You really do love to see it.

If you want to do your bit to look out for dogs in the UK at the moment, then you should make sure you don't leave yours in a car. Even in the midst of a heatwave, some dog owners have left their pets unattended in hot cars - seemingly unaware of the danger to their dog.
At the weekend, two dogs had to be rescued by police after they were left trapped in a car in Cornwall for more than two hours.
According to Cornwall Live, worried residents alerted authorities after seeing the two dogs in a car park by Looe beach.
Eyewitness Kieran Mccrash Mclelland said police smashed a window to get the dogs out of the dangerously hot vehicle. His photo was shared on social media where people voiced their anger at the helpless pups being left in such perilous conditions.
The RSPCA warned that dogs should never be left in a car during weather like we're having at the moment.
It said: "Never leave your dog alone in a car on a warm day. If you see a dog in distress in a hot car, dial 999.
"Many people still believe that it's OK to leave a dog in a car on a warm day if the windows are left open or they're parked in the shade, but the truth is, it's still a very dangerous situation for the dog.
"A car can become as hot as an oven very quickly, even when it doesn't feel that warm. When it's 22 degrees, in a car it can reach an unbearable 47 degrees within the hour."
