RSPCA appeal as puppy put down
A PUPPY was found under a bush in such a suffering state that she had to be put to sleep on veterinary advice.
The female dark brindle and white bull breed, thought to be aged about 10 weeks old, had several large open wounds thought to be the result of her lymph glands bursting open because of septicaemia due to a possible bacterial infection.
She was also underweight and had an injured paw after being discovered under some bushes on the corner of Warwick Close and Sussex Close in Church at around 7pm on October 28.
RSPCA inspector Nina Small said the puppy was in ‘an absolutely shocking’ condition.
She said: “She had large holes all over her body, was underweight and had a paw injury. She was in such a suffering state that the vet decided the kindest thing to do was to put her to sleep. At the moment we don’t know who she belonged to as she wasn’t microchipped or wearing a collar and ID tag as is required by law.”
Anyone with information is asked to call the RSPCA inspector appeal line on 0300 123 8018 and ask to leave a message for inspector Nina Small.
