Injured dog ConwyA DOG with two injured legs has been found in a joint rescue.

RSPCA officers, along with Conwy County Borough Council, had been trying to catch the dog for several days from 20 October at Llanddulas, Abergele.

After several attempts, the light brown and white collie dog was caught on Friday (24 October) at Dolwen Road near Llysfaen, after he had been blocked in a farm shed.

RSPCA animal collection officer (ACO) William Galvin said he assisted dog wardens from Conwy County Borough Council in capturing the injured dog.

The dog was then taken to a veterinary surgery by dog wardens and is now staying at kennels.

“It is believed that the dog had been hit by a a car in Abergele on 20 October and attempts had been made to try and catch him since then,” ACO Galvin said.

“He had broken one of his front legs and also could not use one of his back legs properly. But he had been putting weight on his back leg.”

Conwy Dog Warden, Dave Lightfoot, said: “The dog looked aggressive, but it was just very frightened and we’re pleased it’s now safe and receiving treatment.

“If anyone knows whose dog it is, we’d like to reunite them – please get in touch with us on 01492 575222.”
