The RSPCA is appealing for information after an emaciated and suffering dog was found in Maltby, South Yorkshire.
Dingo – as he’s been named by RSPCA staff – came into our care on Monday (1 July) after a call to our cruelty line.
RSPCA Inspector Sara Jordan said: “He was found by a teenager in woods in Maltby and taken home after it became apparent he was alone and in poor condition.
“He was very thin and weak and kept collapsing.
“As soon as I saw him I knew he needed to go straight to the vets.”
He is described as an older unneutered male crossbreed dog. He was emaciated, dehydrated, had a urine infection and very long nails.
He wasn’t wearing a collar and ID and wasn’t microchipped – as is now required by law – so at the moment there is no way of tracing his owner.
Sara said: “Vets are hopeful he should start to put weight on with normal feeding and his bloods didn’t show any underlying issues.
“I’m hoping someone will recognise him and let us know who his owner is as we need to investigate how he came to be so incredibly thin.
“Please call our appeal line on 0300 123 8018 and ask to leave a message for me.”
