Patsy and Phoebe might not have lasted much longer in those terrible conditions, and they were both incredibly lucky to be found when they were. They were immediately taken into the care of the RSPCA and treated for skin issues, and Phoebe was also treated for severe breathing problems. Luckily, both dogs ended up making a full recovery, and before long they both found amazing new forever homes.
Knight was arrested, and later pled guilty to three animal welfare offenses, according to the RSPCA. He is now serving time in jail, and has been disqualified from ever being able to have animals in his care again.
