Scottish SPCA Seeking Leads on 10 year-old Poodle/Bichon Left Abandoned Roadside in Wire Cage…

We are appealing for information after a severely matted dog was abandoned in a Fife lay-by. Motorists discovered the terrified bichon frise cross poodle on the B9037 road between Shiresmill and Blairhall. The dog, estimated to be ten years old, was taken to a vets where he had over a kilo of hair removed. He is now in the care of our Edinburgh and Lothians Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre, where he has been named Bob. Bob was left at the side of the road in a wire cage which still had the tag on it, indicating it may have been bought purely to dump him in. There was cold meat left inside the cage along with some toys. Bob had been allowed to become extremely matted, his claws were very overgrown and his ears were sore and infected. He clearly hadn’t been receiving the care he needed. Leaving him in such a state at the side of a busy road was incredibly cold-hearted and cruel. Unfortunately, our enquiries have not yet led us to the person responsible so we are now appealing to members of the public with information to come forward. Anyone with information is being urged to contact our Animal Helpline on 03000 999 999.
