Appeal after abandoned dog found in Alderman's Green put to sleep

Coventry Editorial 23rd Feb, 2024   0

THE RSPCA has appealed for information after an abandoned dog in Alderman’s Green had to be put to sleep.

A member of the public found the adult female pug tied to a tree on a country lane at 10.30am on Saturday, February 10.

They took the dog to the nearby RSPCA Coventry and District Branch, where she was cared for.

RSPCA Insp Vicki Taylor transported her to RSPCA Birmingham Animal Centre and Hospital to be examined by vets.

Vets nicknamed the dog ‘Tulip’ and carried out several tests, but she had multiple lumps on her body and was suffering from a mass in her chest.

Her condition worsened and she developed severe hypoglycaemia, meaning the vet decided to put her to sleep.

Insp Taylor said: “It’s incredibly sad poor Tulip was so unwell when she was abandoned, she couldn’t be saved despite vets working around the clock to give her the best chance.

“I’m very keen to find out more about Tulip and what happened to her.

“She wasn’t microchipped, so I’m appealing to anyone in the local area who recognises her or may have some information about why she was abandoned and by who.”
