The RSPCA have appealed for information after a "poorly" shih tzu was found limping on Turnbull Road in Gorton on Sunday.
A concerned member of the public contacted the RSPCA and Inspector Lorna Campbell came to the little dog’s rescue. He was taken to Greater Manchester Animal Hospital and is now receiving treatment by RSPCA staff.
The RSPCA say they haven't been able to trace the dog's owner because he was not microchipped.
The male cream shih tzu had recently been groomed and was wearing a black collar with white bones on it.
“He has a mass on his left hind leg which is infected and a possible tumour on his right hind knee which is causing him to limp. He also has fleas which have caused scabs on his skin and gunky eyes.
“He was clearly suffering when I found him so I am very keen to find his owner and investigate how he came to be in Turnbull Road roaming around on his own.
“We’d urge all owners to get their pets microchipped,” Inspector Campbell added. “It means you’re much more likely to be reunited with your beloved pet much more quickly if they go missing or get lost.”
The RSPCA have asked anyone with information to contact the inspectorate appeal line on 0300 123 8018 and reference Inspector Campbell. All calls will be dealt with in the strictest confidence.
In April 2016, it became a legal requirement to have dogs microchipped and registered details kept up-to-date. For more details on microchipping visit https://www.rspca.org.uk/adviceandwelfare/pets/general/microchipping/dogs
