An RSPCA officer is appealing for information after a dog was found in a Huntingdonshire park with severe injuries

The dog, a chihuahua, was found collapsed on a path with severe injuries in Judith’s Field, in Godmanchester, and later died.

The RSPCA says the female dog was found on the afternoon of August 2 by a member of the public who contacted Wood Green Animal Shelter. The animal charity collected the dog and rushed her straight to an independent vet for treatment.

On examination, however, it was clear the dog’s injuries were so severe she would not recover and the kindest thing was to end her suffering and she was put to sleep.

The dog, who was cream in colour and around eight years old, was microchipped. Her past owners were contacted and revealed that the dog had been stolen some two years ago from their home in Wales.

RSPCA inspector Justin Stubbs is now appealing for information.

He said: “This poor dog had some very severe injuries and we are keen to speak to anyone who may know what happened to her.
