After sentencing, Scottish SPCA Inspector Louise Seddon, said: “Maisie, the Border collie, was extremely thin under her coat and I could only feel bones rather than fat or muscle.

“All of Lola’s bones were visible, to the extent that her head looked too big for her body.

“After being taken to the vets it was revealed that both dogs weighed only 13.2kg, when they should have both weighed around 20kg.

“Although it was difficult to pin point an exact time frame as to how long they had been suffering, the vet confirmed that they had a lack of food for a number weeks.

“Whilst in our care it became clear to us that Maisie and Lola were simply not being fed as they quickly put on a significant amount of weight when they were fed adequately.
