A neglected dog has been found abandoned and tied to the back of a car in the middle of the night in Cambridgeshire.
RSPCA inspectors said two-year-old Saluki, who has been renamed Louis, was discovered attached by his lead to the bumper of a car parked on the High Street at West Wratting, near Cambridge.
The owner of the vehicle called the charity at about midnight on Tuesday March 17.
The dog was thin, with a lacklustre coat, eat mites and a bad cut to his foot. He had no microchip or tag.
"Not only was this poor dog dumped without any care - but he was left in an incredibly dangerous place in the middle of the night.
"It was so lucky that the car owner managed to spot poor Louis before he drove off."

Campaigners for animal rights are tonight backing calls to ban electric shock collars, used to train dogs and cats.
The devices, which are freely on sale, are said to cause pain, fear and distress to the animals instead of rewarding them for good behaviour.
But the people who make, sell and use the collars say they are a valuable training aid that can help to control dogs when they are distracted or at a distance from the owner.
