SPCA says puppy’s tail ‘grossly swollen, in­fected’ after home am­pu­ta­tion

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - CANADA -

VAN­COU­VER — The SPCA is look­ing for the owner of an in­jured Dober­man pin­scher puppy found at the side of a road in Lan­g­ley, B.C.

It says the three-month-old pup, dubbed Lola, was dis­cov­ered on Sun­day.

Pre­ven­tion and en­force­ment of­fi­cer Mar­cie Mo­ri­arty says Lola’s tail had been wrapped tightly with a plas­tic zip tie in what is be­lieved to have been an at­tempt to dock, or shorten, the tail for cos­metic rea­sons.

In­stead, she says the tail had be­come hor­ri­bly swollen and in­fected and the thin pup was in a great deal of pain.
