RSPCA officers are trying to trace the owner of a dog that was near to death when she was found on a road in Penrith by a member of the public. One officer describes the five-year-old Staffordshire Boxer cross as one of the most shocking cases he's ever seen.
Ruby, as she's being called, is being nursed back to health but was just a week from death. The RSPCA say they are willing to prosecute the person responsible for neglecting her.
Anyone with information should contact the RSPCA on 03001234999.
