As you are probably already well aware, we just love dogs to death around here. Which is why we were so upset by a recent story we came across about an abandoned dog.
This story will break your heart when you read it.
Paul Skinner was out for a bicycle ride recently when he noticed a dog on the side of the road in a patch of undergrowth. Skinner saw the dog desperately sniffing and licking a plastic bag. When he pulled over to check on the poor dog, he made a gruesome discovery. Someone had placed the dog’s newborn pups inside the bag and suffocated them.
Skinner immediately called the police and they notified a nearby veterinary clinic in a vain attempt to save the puppies lives.
A spokesperson for the veterinary clinic said they could not determine if the four small pups had been stillborn or placed in the bag while they were still alive, but their mother is now safely recovering at an area shelter.
