RSPCA Cymru is appealing for information after a dog was found tied to a fence in a layby near Colwyn Bay.

The dog was found with a red harness and lead, but didn’t have a microchip or identification. He was found on Llanrwst Road near Colwyn Bay yesterday (8 December) by a member of the public who reported it the RSPCA.

Dog found Colwyn Bay 9Dec15RSPCA inspector Mike Pugh said: “The dog, a brindle and white American Bulldog cross, is very friendly.

“He may have run off or got lost from his owner and someone found him and tied him to the fence.

“Or sadly he could have been just left there on his own, abandoned.

“We are appealing for information to try and track the owner of this dog down. They could be desperately searching for him.”

Anyone who may have information about this dog and knows who his owner is should contact the RSPCA inspectorate appeal line on 0300 123 8018. Calls are treated in confidence.

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.
