Buster was just skin and bones when he was rescued from his abusive home in Salford but now he’s living the high life
For Buster it was a dog’s life.
But now rescued from his abusive owners the mastiff is lapping up the high-life.
Buster was found just skin and bones and covered in pressure sores .
But after a dramatic change in fortune it’s all plain sailing.
The family who adopted him from a rescue centre take Buster everywhere with them as the cruise the Mediterranean on their luxury yacht.
Kitted out with his own custom made life vest he is visiting some of the world’s most glamorous hotspots.
Buster weighed just 42lbs when he was discovered in an ‘emaciated’, malnourished state by RSPCA officers at a home in Salford.
A vet who examined Buster said he was the thinnest dog he had seen in his 34-year career.
The cross-breed Mastiff’s skull, ribs and hip bones were all protruding through his skin and he had several pressure sores on his body from lying on a hard floor.
But now has almost doubled in weight and was described by a vet as ‘very bright and enthusiastic, a far cry from the weak and depressed dog he had previously examined.
His former owners Lauren Hunter, 20, and Jamie Larkin, 26, were banned from keeping any animals for 10 years by a court.
This includes a pet snake which will be seized.
The defendants both admitted that they had noticed their dog was underweight but claimed they did not have the financial means to feed him enough or call a vet.
But Buster is now living the high life with his new family, who take him with them on all their glamorous holidays.
