Daniel Bradley moved in with his girlfriend and baby and left his four-year-old dog Nico behind. Weeks later a worried neighbour rang the RSPCA’s cruelty line as they were so concerned about Nico.

Nico as he was found

Nico’s owner pleaded guilty to causing unnecessary suffering to the dog between 5 December last year and 5 January. He admitted that he had been too busy to visit the flat or feed Nico regularly and said that if inspectors hadn’t forced entry, he wouldn’t have returned for another week!

Nico has now been successfully rehomed and has quickly learnt to answer to his new name Ben.
