The Scottish SPCA appeals for information after sick dog found in Greenock

The Scottish SPCA is appealing for information after a female dog was found in Greenock suffering from health issues.

Sick dog in Greenock

We were alerted to the terrier cross by Police Scotland after a member of the public discovered her in a communal back garden on Belville Street on 9 November.

Inspector Jennifer Connolly said, “We were notified that a sick dog had been handed in to Greenock Police Station by a member of the public after being found in a shared garden.

“The dog was so thin and unwell, the police had to arrange urgent veterinary treatment.

“She was found to have severe hair loss and suspected mammary tumours.

“One of our animal rescue and rehoming centres is providing her with the care she needs.

“We are keen to speak to her owner as soon as possible, or anyone else who can tell us more about how the dog came to be in this condition.

“We would urge anyone who recognises her or knows anything to contact our confidential animal helpline on 03000 999 999.”
