RSPCA Cymru is appealing for information after a dog was found abandoned and tied to a railing in Talacre.

The dog, a female German Shepherd type, was found at around 8am yesterday (6 July) with a red lead with yellow stripes tied to a railing at the end of Station Road, Talacre in Flintshire.

A note was found at the location which said her name was Sindy and that the owner could no longer cope.

Dog tied to post Talacre July16RSPCA inspector Kia Thomas said: “This poor dog was not able to use her back legs, and could not stand or walk by herself and was suffering from an infection.

“She was immediately taken to a vets, and a decision was made by the vet that due to the pain she was in and her serious condition, that it was the kindest thing to put her to sleep.

“It was such a shame as she was a lovely dog, but her suffering was too great.”

Sindy had a collar but no tag and was not microchipped.

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

Inspector Thomas said: “I would like to thank the members of public who stayed with her until I arrived. They provided shade with their umbrellas and water for Sindy.

“They also helped me to lift her into my van as she was a very large dog. They showed wonderful kindness towards this dog in very distressing circumstances.”
