The perfect happy ending for bait dog Hector

If you need something to cheer up your first day back at work after the holidays then look no further than the happy ending of bait dog Hector.
The male cross breed was found terrified with his teeth filed down and covered in bite injuries where he had been used as bait to train puppies into fighting dogs of the future.
Now, after a life that you would not even want to imagine, here is Hector in his forever home, wearing his Christmas jumper and getting lots of cuddles and love from his new owners.
Hector was found running scared in Peterborough in September and was taken into foster care with Ravenswood Pet Rescue, which has volunteer carers across the Fens.
After lots of TLC in his foster home he was ready to find his new family.

Here he is enjoying woodland walks, games and plenty of time relaxing and cuddles on the sofa.
When he was found rescue volunteers named him Hector in honour of his brave spirit, inspired by the Greek mythology legend and Trojan warrior prince.

Shelley Ridgeon said: “Hector was justifiably terrified when he first came to us but it is tribute to his strength of character and his fantastic foster carers that he quickly learnt to trust again.
“Now look at him. You couldn’t ask for a better happy ending.”
