A family of seven dogs who were left homeless following a devastating house fire have been helped by an emergency RSPCA effort.
The blaze ignited on a property in Leigh Road, Chandler’s Ford, Hampshire on Sunday and left the Newfoundlands injured and displaced.
But the animal welfare charity swooped in to rescue the dogs - Monty, Celeste, Blue, Remy, Woody, Swift and Rafferty - after firefighters discovered the hounds inside the burning building.
The RSPCA paid for emergency treatment and hospital fees - but sadly, Swift was put down.
Blue was given emergency treatment after suffering burns to 40 per cent of his body.

The other surviving dogs are now "fine" and being cared for in boarding in time for Christmas.
Kathy Otto, a friend of the owners - the Lamb family - set up a fundraising page to raise £5000, after they “lost everything” in the fire.
RSPCA Inspector Hannah Nixon rushed to the scene to assist and found a “black Newfoundland dog laying down with burns to the face.”
She said: "We dismantled a kennel and lifted the dog in with help from the fire crew before rushing her to a vet who gave the dogs pain relief before them being transported and taken for veterinary care.
“I was joined by two RSPCA inspectors, a vet and a vet nurse who we had called to help us at the scene.
Hannah added: “It was great to be able to help these dogs in their moment of need and we really hope the dogs, and their owners continue to keep getting better after such a shocking experience.”
