A young puppy has been found near public toilets in Petersfield, Hampshire on Friday 10th January by a local resident.

The puppy was sniffed by a resident's dog from behind a bin and then ran into the toilet block where it was left with a towel for the dog to lay on.

The puppy, who has been named Heath, has been checked by local vets and found to be in good health and is believed to be an eight to ten-week-old male Cocker Spaniel type.

Animal Welfare Officer Dave Griffiths from East Hampshire District Council said: “Sadly it seems that this little puppy was abandoned at the public toilets on Petersfield Heath by a person who no longer wanted him."
