Location dog found - iiAn appeal for information has been launched after a very unwell Staffordshire bull terrier was found by a member of the public in Moss Valley Park in Wrexham.

The male dog, dark brindle and white in colour, was found in an “appalling state” on Thursday evening (22 March). e was having a seizure, and appeared very thin – so was taken to a local veterinary practice.

Sadly, the condition of the dog was so bad that independent vets were left with no choice but to put the dog to sleep on welfare grounds.

RSPCA Cymru is looking to decipher why the unwell dog was allowed to be staggering around Moss Valley Park on Thursday evening in such urgent need of help.
