Two puppies have been found near Corsham in Wiltshire after it is believed they were dumped in the area.

The pair were around six weeks old when they were found on Monday 18 July.

They have been named Duck and Goose, and have been placed in kennels by the council's dog warden who says they are doing well despite their 'ordeal'.

In an online post Wiltshire Council said: "Both pups are doing well and are currently undergoing care and assessment at our holding kennels.

"We will endeavour to keep updating our followers on their progress as and when we can."

There have already been many people offering to foster and adopt the spaniel-type puppies.
