A dog was rescued after being found abandoned in a filthy garden swamped with rubbish in a heatwave.
Animal charity, the RSPCA recevied a concerned neighbours' call after a female Boxer-type dog was seen wondering around a back garden in Liverpool "for a number of days".
Inspector Anthony Joynes arrived at the location to find the owner had already vacated the property.

In the video, he reveals the horrifying scene that the animal is forced to live in for days.
He said: "I'm currently at the rear garden of the property. Dog is said to be abandoned at the location, this is the condition and the environment this dog is living in.
"No food or water here."
The back garden entrance is blocked by a pile of plastic bags, empty bottles and beer cans.
As Anthony takes a look inside the flat, he finds a mattress and a bike in the bedroom where dog waste can be seen on the carpet.
He turns around to the dog and gives her a snack, saying: "They left you. They left you."
The inspectors were told by the neighbours that they had been feeding the dog through the fence.
The dog was later taken to an RSPCA branch where she will be rehabilitated and eventually rehomed, reported Liverpool Echo.
Jill Smith, RSPCA specialist manager at the National Control Centre, said: “Every day is busy at the RSPCA as we receive more than a million calls a year but summer is our peak time, and this recent heatwave has put extra pressure on our call takers and support staff, frontline rescuers, vets and centres and branches who care for the animal victims of neglect and cruelty.

"We urge anyone thinking of calling to check the website first to see if the advice is there and, where possible and safe, to help the animal themselves or get it to a vet if needed.
"This really helps free up our cruelty line and our frontline rescuers to focus on investigating the heartbreaking cruelty and neglect cases which flood in over summer."
