RSPCA Cymru is appealing for the owner of an injured puppy found on a Swansea bus to come forward.

The tan coloured dog was found on a First Cymru 25 service bus going into Swansea this morning [26 May]. It is believed that the dog may have got on the bus in Manselton.

Injured dog found on Swansea busThe puppy was found at around 10am by a member of the public on the bus who alerted the driver. The puppy aged between three and six month was injured and bleeding.

The driver brought the puppy to the First Cymru office at Swansea City Bus Station from where he was taken to a veterinary surgery and then onto RSPCA’s Llys Nini Animal Centre in Penllergaer.

The puppy has not been microchipped so we are unable to trace his owner.

RSPCA inspector Nigel Duguid said: “This is a lovely little young dog. Somehow he got on the bus and we think he may have walked on. We’re grateful to the member of the public who found the puppy and to the First Cymru staff who got him to a vet.

“It looks like he has a nasty bite to his face.

“Somebody must be missing him so we are appealing for information to try and track down his owner.”

The RSPCA would like to remind people to get their pets microchipped to give their lost pets the chance of returning home. It is also important to register the chip with a national database and update your contact details if you move or change phone number.
