Fanta received emergency veterinary care at the Scottish SPCA rehoming centre near Edinburgh, where he also received his name – Fanta.
Chief Inspector John Chisholm said, “Fanta received severe burns to his ears and face and he was also badly singed over most of his coat.
“We believe he was scorched by a blast of searing heat, possibly from an ignited aerosol or similar.
“This was a horrendous thing to do to an animal. Unfortunately, we didn’t receive the information we needed to identify the person responsible.
“Thankfully Fanta’s injuries healed well in our care and he made a good recovery over time. The difference in him was amazing.
“After all of the trauma he went through, we were very happy when Fanta found a new home where he’ll be loved and cared for the way he deserves.
