A home is being sought for a puppy which was dumped in Leicestershire two weeks before Christmas.
The three-month-old Staffordshire bull terrier-cross puppy was found abandoned during a “cold, wet afternoon” in mid-December.
The black puppy was picked up by an RSPCA inspector and taken to RSPCA Woodside Animal Centre in Leicester where she was examined by a vet and found to be healthy.
The puppy has since been named Ivy, given the festive period she was found, and is now looking for a new home.
Jade Burton RSPCA Woodside’s Operations Manager, said: “Ivy is available for adoption. She is a typical puppy, always on the go and into everything. She had a difficult start in life, but we are looking forward to Ivy finding her forever family.”
Ivy, and all the dogs and cats available for adoption, can be found on RSPCA Woodside’s website at: https://www.rspcaleicester.org.uk/
Anyone who has information they believe may be related to Ivy, is urged to call the RSPCA cruelty line on 0300 1234 999.
