Husky Starved By Owner Undergoes Incredible Transformation
A husky that was nothing more than a 'bag of bones' when he was rescued by an animal shelter in the US, has undergone an incredible transformation.
The once emaciated pooch, called Finn, had been neglected by its former owner, spending two years without being watered or fed properly.
According to reports, the little fella's horrific treatment was a form of revenge by its owner towards his ex-wife, for whom he'd bought Finn as a present.
Speaking about his condition when he arrived at Pet Angels Rescue in Oklahoma, one of the rescuers said it was heartbreaking.
They said: "As soon as we pulled up, we just kind of looked at each other, we just lost it.
"He was a bag of bones, he had barely any fur on him. It was absolute pure neglect."
After being rescued from his owner, the shelter said Finn just curled up into a ball in the car and slept for the whole two-hour trip.
But now, after receiving a little bit of love and attention, as well as the proper care he needed, Finn is now a 'totally different dog' and his impressive coat has finally returned.
One of the rescuers at the shelter also said that he has managed to overcome his trust issues and is 'instantly forgiving'.

And what's more, he's found a new home.
A spokesperson for Pet Angels Rescue said: "His adopters actually came to see him very early on in his recovery.
"They've been incredible, they've given him the best life."
But sadly animal cruelty is nothing new and is not even remotely rare.
However, there are people out there trying to do their bit to save those creatures who are suffering.
And that's just what happened to a dog in India that had been found covered in tar, who now looks unrecognisable after being rescued.
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.
