"It’s so sad to think that they’ve been dumped just two days before Christmas and we have no idea how long they were left outside - it could have been all night. We are hoping they will have their happily ever afters soon!", Sarah from the rescue centre said.

They believe the puppies, which are all Springer Spaniel crosses, are around eight weeks old.

They will be available adoption in the next few days.
