A Cornish dog who was so badly abused she was suffering from depression is all but cured by acupuncture.

Amber suffered severe wounds, sores, weeping eyes and damage to her auto-immune system.

The mastiff cross was given the treatment after being taken in by Bissoe charity K9 Crusaders.

Volunteer Sue Smith told Pirate FM she responded to vets immediately: "One needle was put in, literally that dog dropped to the floor like a stone and we were stunned! Absolutely stunned. It was a total shock. She's had several treatments now and she's gone from strength to strength.

"Her skin is healed, the fur has regrown and an unexpected bonus was a lifting of the depression and the fact that at six years old and bearing in mind she's a giant breed mix, she's now like a puppy."
