GARDENERS' World star Monty Don has responded to fans' concerns about his "skinny" dog.
After a picture of his dog appeared online, showing him to be emaciated to the point where his ribs nearly protruded through his fur, Monty turned to social media to reassure followers.
The 67 year-old said that his dog Ned's thin appearance was not a sign of ill health.
He assured those online that his Golden Retriever was in great spirits and will "fill out shortly".
"Ned ribby but fine and very fit and well," he penned to his 1.1 million followers on Instagram.
Fans were quick to rush to the comments section to support Monty, as many said they have the same experience with their dogs.
