RSPCA ap­peal as puppy put down

Accrington Observer - - NEWS -

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.
