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.
