A puppy rescued by the RSPCA can finally see again after it was given - a FACELIFT.

The 18-month-old Shar Pei, who was previously living in unsuitable conditions, was signed over to the charity to be cared for.

Reggie arrived at the Sussex, Brighton and East Grinstead branch in England completely bald, with extremely sore skin on his back and infected eyes.

His vision was also poor and he needed constant eye treatment.

Two weeks ago, Reggie had the critical surgery to reduce the excess skin covering his face.

He has already recovered and does not need any further medication - so the playful pup can now be re-homed.

Lauren Pearce, deputy head of dogs, said: “Reggie is such a sweetheart, so so friendly and loves everyone.

"We’d like him to live in an adult only home as he isn’t used to children and it would be great if he could live with more experienced owners.

“Sadly Reggie’s breed is prone to having problems due to their extra skin but with the treatment he’s had, we hope that this will help prevent further skin problems in the future.

“He’s a young dog so we hope the right person comes forward so he can get stuck into enjoying his new life.”

Reggie’s surgery cost almost £2,000 ($2,405) - a special rate given to the RSPCA by a local surgery.

This was funded by the Sussex, Brighton and East Grinstead branch.
