The RSPCA is appealing for information after a dog with two big tumours was found abandoned in Stoke-on-Trent.
The white Staffordshire bull terrier, who has been nicknamed Bubbles, was found in Garsdale Crescent, Blurton, on Tuesday morning.
Bubbles has a tumour inside her mouth and another on the right side of her body. She is currently being treated and being kept comfortable at a veterinary practice.
She is a lovely, very friendly girl but is unfortunately riddled with tumours which obviously haven’t been treated. Sadly she is very poorly. We would like to find out more about where she came from.
Anyone with information should call the RSPCA on 0345 123 8018.

A cat has managed to survive a 150 mile round-trip whilst trapped in the engine bay of a Mercedes Benz.
Four-year-old tabby cat Darcy is thought to have taken shelter from the rain under the car and somehow got trapped in the engine bay.
The owner of the car made the startling discovery when she took her car to the garage after returning from a trip from Cannock, in Staffordshire, to Manchester.
Staff at Fix Auto in Crossfield Industrial Estate, Lichfield, first became aware there was a problem when the car’s owner reported its engine warning light had come on and yet there were no obvious sign of a problem.
After a test drive, they noticed a strange burning smell rising from under the bonnet and then, on closer inspection, discovered fur wrapped around the engine’s alternator.
Fearing the worst, they inspected the engine itself, only to find Darcy alive and well in the engine.
Technicians at Fix Auto in Lichfield said that the car had been brought in just before close on Saturday afternoon, meaning that Darcy wasn't discovered until Monday morning.
The poor thing looked absolutely petrified. Who knows how long he had been stuck in there."
“He was so close to various moving parts, it’s a miracle he survived.”
Staff called the RSPCA and Inspector Kate Levesley arrived to help with the rescue.
Darcy’s owner, Christine Evans, of Lupin Drive, Cannock, said she was thrilled to get Darcy back after he had been missing for three days.
Darcy is absolutely fine other than he’s got a bald patch on his tail. When he got back home he acted as though nothing had happened. We are so happy to have him back.”
