A chihuahua found wandering alone along a Bishop's Stortford street, suffering from severe hair loss and sore skin, is recovering at an RSPCA animal rescue centre.

Pixie, as she has since been named, was wearing a grey and white striped jumper when she was rescued in Haymeads Lane on the evening of Monday, January 22.

She is thought to be around three and may have been suffering with the skin and hair conditions for weeks.

She was found by a member of the public who took her to a vet to get help. It is not clear whether she had been abandoned or had escaped.

RSPCA inspector Lucy Brennan said: “She’s suffering from a really severe skin condition and it had become so bad that she was developing a secondary infection. The sad thing is this condition could have been easily managed had it been treated early on.

“Pixie is a very sweet little girl and super-friendly, even though she’s been through a terrible ordeal. I’m investigating this incident and I’m eager to hear from anyone who may know who owned her or may have any information as to why she was found on her own.”

Anyone with information can contact Lucy on 0300 123 8018.

Pixie is being cared for by RSPCA Danaher Animal Home in Wethersfield, Essex, where she will continue to be treated for her skin condition.
