RSPCA appeals for help after abandoned Alsatian Blue is found by River Stort
A two-year-old Alsatian called Blue has been abandoned by the River Stort in Spellbrook.
The dog had been tied to a post on the towpath and was found wandering off Dell Lane on the evening of Monday, February 18.
He was found by a member of the public who called the RSPCA for help.
Charity inspector Ann Bennett said: “The dog was microchipped and his name is Blue. He's around two years old.
"We've been following up the information on his microchip and trying to trace any previous owners, but to no avail. We hope the public will be able to help us if they recognise him.
“Poor Blue was found on the footpath close to the canal and he'd managed to get loose. He was found just wandering up and down the footpath, which is close to the canal, and appeared lost and confused. We suspect he may have been there for several hours.
“He's such a lovely, friendly dog and understands basic voice commands, so why someone would just want to abandon him we just can’t understand.
“It’s heartbreaking to think that someone has just left him there, with no consideration for his welfare.
“Fortunately he is now in RSPCA care and receiving lots of love and attention, which he deserves."
Anyone with information about Blue's owner is asked to call the RSPCA appeal line on 0300 123 8018.
