Puppies found abandoned in the snow last Christmas Eve reunited after surviving against the odds

They were found after being abandoned in the snow last Christmas Eve. Lost, starving and alone, the tiny puppies had been left for dead during one of the coldest winters on record.

But a year on, the MailOnline has caught up with Brandy and Pudding, now fully grown and leading happy lives with their new owners.

The puppies were both aged around 12 weeks when they were rescued last winter and taken to the Dogs Trust in Newbury, Berkshire.

Dedicated staff gave them round-the-clock care over the festive period and they were re-homed early this year.

Now Pudding and Brandy have been brought together for a Christmas reunion at the Dogs Trust.

Manager Maureen Iggleden said: 'Pudding and Brandy survived against all odds and they now lead happy and healthy lives with their new owners.

'Not all puppies are so lucky and we urge anyone thinking of buying a puppy for Christmas to consider the responsibility as they require a lot of time and commitment and can live for up to 16 years.

'Puppies should never be given as gifts and Pudding and Brandy highlight the dangers of impulse puppy purchases.'

Brandy, a Staffordshire Bull Terrier, was severely underweight when he was rescued in Reading, Berkshire, while Pudding, a Boxer cross, was found in woodland with a distended stomach.

After being nursed back to health the puppies were found new homes - Brandy now lives with Mark Wright in Berkshire while Pudding is in the care of Kat Eighteen.
