RSPCA Cymru is appealing for information after a dog was abandoned on an escape stairwell outside a block of flats in Rhyl.

The dog, a female bull mastiff type dog, was found at the flats on Edward Henry Street with a member of the public calling the RSPCA on Thursday 6 September.

Abandoned dog Rhyl 14Sept18RSPCA inspector Rachael Davies said: “We’re appealing for information as we don’t know the circumstances around why this poor dog was left in a stairwell outside a block of flats. It does appear that she was just left there – abandoned without any water, food, shelter or a bed. She must have been so frightened.

“The caller told us she had been there for two days and people had been afraid to go past her as she was behaving aggressively. When I arrived she initially appeared aggressive but then she came around. She was just scared.”

The brindle dog, who has no microchip, has been placed into RSPCA care and nicknamed Vera. Following a few days of settling in to her new surroundings, she will be given a full veterinary check up, although she appears to be of good health.

Inspector Davies added: “She is an affectionate soul and the staff looking after her say she is a lovely natured dog who loves her toys. If an owner is not found, she will be made available for rehoming and I’m sure she will make a great companion.”

Anyone with any information is asked to contact the RSPCA’s appeals line on 0300 123 8018, leaving a message for Inspector Davies.
