The tiny Chinese crested puppy Chihuahua cross named Arthur is being nursed back to health after he was handed over to RSPCA officials with a body temperature so low he had hypothermia.
The animal charity, who took care of the pooch when he was just six-weeks-old is now warning future pet owners to be wary of taking on animals when they are too young.
The now eight-week-old puppy, who weighs just 600 grams and stands at four inches tall, is making a full recovery at the RSPCA centre in Chobham, Surrey.
But the tiny pup, who has already found a new home, has been keeping the chills at bay with adorable jumpers made out of socks Deputy manager Liz Wood was looking for items to keep him warm – but the only thing small enough to fit on his chest were tiny children’s socks.
She’s now created an entire wardrobe of fashionable woolly jumpers for little Arthur.
