Inspector Sarah Morris of the RSPCA was the first to come to Pudding's aid after the passerby called for help, and she couldn't believe her eyes. "The state Pudding was in when I first saw him was so sad, but it also made me so angry that someone had neglected him so much already, just to dump him on Christmas Eve," Morris said in a press release. "He was soaking wet. We had torrential rain during the night and he had just been left out in it, tied up. I felt so sorry for this poor little chap."
