RSPCA appeals for information
The RSPCA is appealing for information after two dogs were found dumped in a poorly state by the river in Tottenham, one barely able to walk because he was so thin.
Mo, a female British bulldog, thought to be around five years old, and Morris, a male Staffordshire bull terrier, thought to be about ten, were discovered by the water’s edge at Tottenham Marshes near Kessock Close at around 10pm on Thursday 8 January by some passers-by.
It is thought they had been wandering loose, but had stopped and were huddled together by the time they were found as Morris was so weak he struggled to walk.
The passers-by wrapped them in blankets and called the RSPCA, waiting with them on a park bench
RSPCA inspector Kate Ford said: “They were such a sad little pair, it broke my heart to see them.
“Thankfully these kind people walked past and found them and cared for them. It was very lovely that they wrapped them up in blankets and cuddled them on the bench the way they did.
“They were both so painfully thin, they had clearly just not been cared for. Morris the Staffy could barely walk and I had to carry him to the van and then into the animal hospital.
“They are doing a lot better now, thankfully, after a good feed, some warmth and lots of cuddles.
“Morris is quite old and frail, poor thing, but just so adorable, and Mo just loves him. I hope they can be rehomed together but it can be difficult to find homes for two at once.
“We urge anyone with any information about how these two gorgeous things came to be left that way to call us on 0300 123 8018.”
The dogs will need some care before being rehomed, but anyone interested in rehoming them should contact the national number 0300 1234 999 and ask for their interest to be given to the inspector involved.
