Poor dog found stuck to the ground in tar is unrecognisable after being rescued
A lovely dog has been rescued after being found walking the street covered in tar.
Champi was found stuck to the pavement in Solapur, a city in the south-western region of the state of Maharashtra, in west India.
Half of her body was covered in coal tar and debris and she limped in pain as she struggled to walk.
Luckily she was found by local animal rescue team Animal Rahat and was sedated before the workers removed the tar off her.
Video shared by the animal group, which is supported by PETA, shows the moment Champi was discovered on the streets.
It also shows volunteers carefully rubbing the tar off using vegetable oil and removing the loose leaves and dirt from her coat of fur.
The painstaking process of removing the thick dark liquid took four days. She was then given a lengthy recovery as the damaged skin underneath the tar needed time to heal before a new coat of fur grew
Thanks to the worker's effort, Champi managed to get through the ordeal and swiftly regained her strength.
Champi is now unrecognisable with her incredible transformation. The joyful pooch has a beautiful glossy spotted fur, with the video showing her running in a field while wagging her tail excitedly.
The dog's story has touched locals' hearts and she was recently adopted by a loving family where she can spend her day playing with other dogs and farm animals.
The video was accompanied with a message: "Despite the ordeal, her sweet and playful personality began to shine through, and when she was finally tar-free, one of her rescuers made her part of his family.
"Now, her fur has grown back and she spends her days running in the fields at her new home and playing with her animal friends, including some rescued chickens.
"Nothing can hold her back from living her best life."
