Sick dog dumped days af­ter giv­ing birth

Nottingham Post - - NEWS -

A SICK, elderly, dog was found dumped near a bin days af­ter giv­ing birth.

The Stafford­shire bull ter­rier, called Molly, was found in Col­li­son Street, Hyson Green, on Sun­day af­ter a wit­ness saw a cou­ple in a car dump­ing her.

Molly is thought to be aged nine and it ap­pears she has been used to breed nu­mer­ous times.

RSPCA in­spec­tor Su­san Ham­mond is ap­peal­ing for in­for­ma­tion. She said: “A wit­ness saw a man put the dog be­hind a gate and he then placed a bin in front of it be­fore get­ting in a sil­ver Vaux­hall Vec­tra car, with a 2005 reg­is­tra­tion, and driv­ing off. A fe­male was seen in the car with an­other dog.

“It is such a cal­lous thing to do. I be­lieve her own­ers bred her to make money and when she was no longer any value to them, they sim­ply dumped her.”

Molly has re­ceived emer­gency treat­ment and will re­main in the care of the RSPCA for now. She was dumped be­tween 12.45pm and 1.30pm. Any­one with in­for­ma­tion can contact the RSPCA on 0300 123 8018.
