Puppy found crying in lane

11 Jan 2013

The Scottish SPCA is appealing for information after a six week old puppy was found crying and shivering alone in a lane.

We were alerted after a member of the public discovered the dog in a lane behind Honeywell Crescent in Chapelhall at around 7.30pm on Wednesday (9 January).

The black and tan female crossbreed puppy was taken to our Lanarkshire Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre, where she has been named Honey.

Animal Rescue Officer Ashley Griffin said, "The woman found Honey after hearing her cries.

"It was very cold on Wednesday evening and poor Honey was shivering.

"At this stage we don't know how she came to be there. It is a residential area so it's possible she has gone missing from her home nearby.

"However, we can't rule out the possibility she has been abandoned.

"Either way, Honey is far too young to be outside on her own, especially in the cold and dark.

"She was really frightened but she's doing well in our care and proving to be an absolute sweetheart.

"If anyone recognises Honey we'd like to hear from them."

Abandoning an animal is an offence and anyone found guilty of doing so can expect to be banned from keeping animals for a fixed period or life.

Anyone with information is being urged to contact our Animal Helpline on 03000 999 999.
