‘The puppies are only around five weeks old and both were very weak and sick. He contacted us and went back to the park to check on them but, sadly, the second puppy had already died.
‘When I went to collect them, the male was collapsed on top of his dead sibling; it was heartbreaking.
‘I rushed the surviving pup to our veterinary hospital where he was given emergency treatment.
‘He’s still on a drip and is receiving round-the-clock care. Thankfully his temperature has come down and he’s starting to eat on his own so I really hope he pulls through.’
Truffle remains in RSPCA care, where he’ll stay until he is better.
