Collie-type dog abandoned without food or water

Wednesday 6 November 2013

RSPCA Cymru is appealing for information about a dog found tied to a tree on a Wrexham bridleway.

The tri-coloured collie-type dog who is approximately one-year-old was found by a member of the public near Berse Lane in Bersham on Saturday 2 November 2013.

He was tied with a bale string that was looped around the neck so it tightened when he strained to get away. As a result he ended up bruising his neck in the throat area. He was very thin and had a high temperature.

The dog was examined by a vet and given a course of antibiotics. He wasn’t microchipped and remains in the care of the RSPCA while enquiries are made to find his owner.

Inspector Kia Thomas commented: “This dog was left with no food or water and tied up with a string that injured him when he tried to pull away.

“He is a lovely natured dog and didn’t deserve to be left like this. If anyone has information about this dog we are eager to speak to them as soon as possible”.
