RSPCA appeals for information after bald dog is found dumped in a park

The RSPCA is appealing for information after a bald dog was found dumped in a park in Bulkington, Warwickshire. The Shar Pei dog was found on Sunday 13 October in the Bulkington Recreation Ground. The dog had complete fur loss on her body with just a few fine hairs left in place. RSPCA inspector Louise Labram said: “This poor dog was suffering from demodectic mange and had clearly been left untreated for weeks. “This could have been treated and sorted had the owner just taken her to a vet. But instead whoever owned this dog has just abandoned her and left someone else to pick up the pieces. The dog who has been named Pearl is now being cared for by staff at the RSPCA Coventry, Nuneaton and District Branch. Glenn Mayroll, animal centre manager, said: “Pearl is doing well and has now begun treatment for the demodectic mange – and this involves various dips and baths – which she doesn’t seem to mind. “We think she is just around 10 months old. Pearl is a gorgeous and happy friendly girl and really affectionate and fussy. It breaks our heart to think someone has left her to suffer and then just dumped her without a care.” Inspector Labram added: “I would appeal to anyone who recognises this dog or who knows who her owner maybe to call the RSPCA inspector appeal line on 0300 123 8018.” To help the RSPCA investigate cases like this text HELP to 78866 to give £3 (texts costs £3 + one standard network rate message).
