We are appealing for information after a young, male Labrador was found potentially abandoned in woodland near Cardenden Motocross Track on 15 July at around 16.30.

Scottish SPCA inspector, Robyn Gray, said, “The dog is only around nine months to a year old and was extremely underweight when he was found. 

“He had a piece of blue twine rope around his neck.

“The dog was very scared when he was found, and has since been showing evident signs of mental and physical trauma.  He is now at one of our animal rescue and rehoming centres where he is receiving the care and rehabilitation he needs.

“We understand that the person who left him may have intended for him to be found but this is not the correct way to give up an animal if you can no longer care for them.

“We are keen to establish the details surrounding how the dog came to be here, and what has happened to him up to that point. 

“No applications to rehome or notes of interest are being accepted at this point.

“If anyone recognises this dog they should call our confidential animal helpline on 03000 999 999.”




If anyone is concerned about an animal, please do not hesitate to contact our confidential animal helpline on 03000 999 999.
