Neglected Dog's Owner Sought By RSPCA

Tuesday August 12 2014

Before Before

THE owner of a dog who was found wandering the streets with maggot-infested fur is wanted by the RSPCA.

Inspectors from the animal charity said the Westie-type dog, which was found on Hope Avenue, Goldthorpe, is now unrecognisable after having had his matted coat shaved off.

The dog - who has no microchip - was found by a member of the public on July 27.

"There's such a difference between the pictures of him before and after," said RSPCA inspector Sara Jordan. 

"He must have been left living in his own filth for several months, and that’s why we're asking anyone who knows who this dog belongs to contact us."

Call 0300 123 8018 if you have any information.

A dog is living breathing creature and it always gets to me when one is mistreated all a dog wants to do is please it's owner and some one comes along and does this who is the real animal the dog or the owner he or she is less than an animal and I hope he or she never gets to keep a dog or any other animal again
