FORCED to spend her whole life in one room and never being taken out for a walk was the former distressing tale of crossbreed Phoebe.

The three-year-old dog endured this cruel life before she was rescued by an RSPCA inspector earlier in the year.

Now living at RSPCA Southridge Animal Centre in South Mimms, life for Phoebe has turned around for the better.

A spokesman for the Packhorse Lane centre told the Welwyn & Hatfield Times: "Phoebe was forced to live in her own mess and the faeces and urine of other animals.

"But since she has been at RSPCA Southridge she has been spotlessly clean in her kennel and staff have seen no sign of her being destructive - in fact she keeps her bed area very tidy indeed."

The spokesman added: "She loves running through the grass and sunbathing on the stone paths around the centre, and is over the moon to meet everyone she sees."
