Betty the bulldog, who was found living outside surrounded by her own faeces in Ely, has been rehomed.
The two-year-old white and brown bulldog, who was forced to eat from a bowl next to a pile of her own faeces in a six foot by three foot outbuilding, was found by East Cambridgeshire Police and the RSPCA.
Betty was living in a dirty outbuilding, along with two other dogs found at the property in Cambridgeshire in March last year.
Bulldogs Betty and Wilma and a terrier cross called Gabbi were taken to the RSPCA Blackberry Farm Centre in Aylesbury where they were cared for by staff and later rehomed.
Sam Chisholme, 43, of Bedfordshire, rehomed Betty in March this year.
He said: “She has a much better life today spending most of her time walking and quality time with me and her three-year-old friend Riley - my other bulldog, and my son Callum.
“Betty is fit and healthy now and she’s incredibly placid. You would never know from her temperament that she has been through such an ordeal.

“She is such a beautiful little friend to have around.”
Mr Chisholme, an engineer, has had bulldogs in the family for the past 20 years.
He said: “She loves her walks and for a bulldog she’s quite good. She’s fit and healthy, whereas Riley will tire much quicker than her.”
RSPCA Inspector Alex Coghlan, who rescued the dogs, said: “It’s lovely to see that these dogs have found a new loving home, especially Betty who was in such a sad state when we found her. It’s so rewarding to see her get the happy ending she deserves.”
Wilma and Gabbi have also been rehomed by the RSPCA. Wilma has another bulldog friend and Gabbi was adopted by an RSPCA volunteer.
