A thorough bath made Biscuit reveal her true colours as the water washed away the thick layer of soot and ash that had turned her coat completely grey.
RSPCA Animal Collection Officer Ellie Jones had been on call overnight when Avon Fire & Rescue Service called in with a request for help. Ellie said: ‘When I arrived the amazing firefighters had already managed to help Biscuit and were giving her oxygen to help her breathe.
‘Thankfully the fire crew were able to get her out quickly and – thanks to the pet oxygen masks – give vital oxygen to enable full recovery.
‘I was concerned for her welfare so once she’d had some oxygen I gave her a check over and took her to Bristol Animal Rescue Centre to be seen by a vet.
Jenny Crowell, from Bristol Animal Rescue Centre, added: ‘When poor Biscuit first arrived everyone thought she was a grey dog but as you’ll see in this video a soothing bath quickly proved otherwise.
Limit treats to training rewards. This is an excellent way to make sure your dog views treats as special rather than expected. It’s also helpful in keeping your pet from becoming overweight or obese. Feed a species-appropriate diet, and partner with a holistic or integrative vet to maintain your pet’s well-being.
‘Biscuit has now fully recovered and is doing well.’
Now she’s back to good health, Biscuit is ready to find a new home.
She’s a sweet, loving, and very well-behaved dog who loves a cuddle and a fuss – but isn’t a fan of having her nails clipped.
She’s lived with dogs in the past, so could potentially live with another pooch (depending on whether introductions go well), and can live with children over 10 years of age.
