A dog which was set on fire by thugs in Bristol last week, has had surgery.
Ozzie was given a 50% chance of surviving the ordeal
Ozzie, a border collie, was given a 50% chance of survival after being tied up and set alight.
The two-year-old was found by the RSPCA wandering in the Bedminster area of the city with burns to his face and body on Thursday last week.
Vets are hoping the operation will help ease the animal's distress. Cash rewards have been pledged to help find those responsible for the act.
The injuries to the animal were so bad, bones were showing through.
Glyn Roberts, from the RSPCA, said: "Something like this is deliberate. We will take those responsible to court if we find them."
