10 week old puppy dumped

The RSPCA is appealing for information after a young puppy was found abandoned on a Buckinghamshire road last week.


‘Bugle’, as staff at the charity’s Blackberry Farm Animal Centre have named him, was found on the evening of Wednesday 9 October by a passer by.  The ten week old cross breed dog had been left tied to a lamp post on the road that runs between Haddenham and Stone.


He was cared for overnight by the person who found him and they took him to the RSPCA centre near Aylesbury the next day.


RSPCA inspector Andy Eddy said:  “We are not sure exactly which road Bugle was found on as we haven’t been given that information but we believe it was Ford Road, which runs between Haddenham and Stone.


“We need to find out who left this young puppy there as, if it wasn’t for the kind actions of this passer by, he may not have been found and could have suffered.  As it was, he was left frightened and alone by the very person who was supposed to care for him.”


Staff at the centre say that tri-coloured Bugle is doing OK and a veterinary check has not revealed any problems.  If his owner does not come forward a new home will be sought for him.


Anyone with information about who abandoned Bugle should contact the RSPCA inspector appeal line on 0300 123 8018.
