emaciated female lurcher

We are appealing for information after an emaciated female lurcher was abandoned near Riverbank primary school in the Tillydrone area of Aberdeen.

A member of the public took the dog to a local vet practice on Christmas day after they discovered her in poor condition.

Scottish SPCA Inspector, Alexandra Campbell, said: “The dog is tan coloured female lurcher who is extremely underweight. She also has evidence of having pups within the last couple of days. 

“The dog is now in the care of one of our animal rescue and rehoming centres.

“If anyone recognises this dog or has any information surrounding her circumstances, they should call the Scottish SPCA 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.
