When rescuers discovered this puppy, they feared he might be dead.
Flies covered his body, as he lay almost motionless under a parked car.
But in a stunning recovery over just two months, the dog is now back to his normal self.
A heart-warming video released by Animal Aid Unlimited shows the journey Oliver - as they've now called him - has made to recuperation.
Team members from the organisation rushed the dog to hospital when they found him.
They said his body temperature was at a vulnerably low level, but managed to help save him.
"We rushed him back to the hospital where our team warmed and hydrated his dangerously cold body with hot water bottles and IV fluids," they said in a post on Facebook.
"But we thought he was dying. Yet within an hour, this gentle little sprite amazed us. He started looking around. He tried to stand."
The dog was diagnosed with a severe respiratory infection, and still had to fight for his life despite the team finding him.
"But then, he beat the odds," they said. "Just watch this wonderful boy who came back from the dead."
