A bit of puppy love has worked wonders for abandoned Elmo.
A PUPPY has made a miraculous recovery after being found abandoned in Garston at just 10 weeks old.
The pup and her mum were taken to Merseyside Dogs Home, after being found on Canterbury Street in September.
Named Elmo by staff, the female puppy was in a sorry state when she first came to the Halewood centre.
But staff say she has made a miraculous recovery and found herself a loving new home. Paul Dunne, manager of the dogs home, said Elmo's journey back to health had been thanks to a quick diagnosis from the vet, trial treatment of drugs and love of her foster carers.
Elmo was fostered by Katie Fahy, who has now decided to offer her a permanent home.
Katie said: "She was so sad when we got her but it's been pleasing and rewarding to see her recover."
