The world can seem like a cruel, cold place for an 8-week-old Chihuahua.
Especially one who was dumped outside a shelter in the middle of winter.
When staff at the RSPCA's Millbrook rescue centre found Arthur, he was suffering from severe hypothermia.
"He had sores all over his body, weighed just 17 ounces, and was freezing cold," the shelter's deputy manager Liz Wood tells The Express. "His body temperature was four degrees lower than it should've been."
