This incredible video shows the moment a missing dog, rescued on the brink of death, was reunited with its loving owner.
Ty, a Staffordshire terrier cross shar-pei, went missing while his owner Leanne Connelly took him out for a walk just after Christmas last year. Mother-of-three Leanne, 29, spent weeks looking for the Ty, 12, but sadly to no avail. During this period his period the freezing temperatures and lack of food caused him weight to plummet to 13.5 kilogrammes, 60 per cent of what it should be. He was found curled up, emaciated and lifeless on a doorstep of a shop in Tulse Hill, London, by a concerned passerby who called Blue Cross Victoria animal hospital. Its vets and nurses fought to save Ty, who managed to pull through despite it being critically ill for several days.
