    Saved from the brink of death: Incredible recovery of the starving puppy so thin her nickname was Spaghetti


    When the pooch - named after Barilla spaghetti because she was so thin - was first admitted to the vet, it was not known whether she would survive.

    She weighed just 16lbs and despite being hooked up to a drip, staff at the centre knew she could suffer organ failure at any time.

    Seven weeks on and she is a new dog after wolfing down more food than she had likely ever seen in the 10-month nightmare she lived through before.

    Footage of the remarkable transformation has been viewed by more than two million people on Facebook alone and touched hearts around the world.

    Nice looking dog, a lot of people have no problem hurting animals, I can't understand that.

    There is a special place in hell for assholes like the previous owner of the dog.

    I hope someone slowly tortures them before setting them on fire.
