RSPCA inspectors are searching for a dog owner who abandoned his pet over the weekend and left him tied to the railings of a park in Manchester.
The elderly German Shepherd who has been given the name Spencer, was suffering from arthritis and malnourishment and animal welfare officers say he was desperately needed to see a vet.
It's thought he was left because of the possible cost of medical treatment, our reporter Paul Crone has this report:
Unfortunately this old German Shepard is not the only dog being abandoned in our region. Shocking figures show the extent of the problem:
An elderly dog that was abandoned at a park in Manchester is being cared for at an animal hospital. The black and tan German Shepherd was found tied to railings at the entrance to Platt Fields Park at about 11.50 on Saturday morning. It is not known how long he had been there.
Inspector Paul Heaton from the RSPCA says that this kind of incident has sadly become a daily occurrence for his team in Manchester.
The dog’s eyes were badly ulcerated and he was arthritic and underweight. He was wearing a black fabric collar but had no ID tag or microchip to identify him.
