An RSPCA Inspector who rescued an abandoned dog in Kings Norton is investigating whether she may have been used as a bait dog in dog fights.
The RSPCA are keen to find the owner of the female Staffordshire Bull Terrier cross which was picked up after being reported wandering around Longdales Road on Wednesday (21st August).
She was found to have severe bite marks to her face and neck, which are consistent with being attacked by another dog.
The dog has no identification and has been named Primrose by staff caring for her at the RSPCA’s Birmingham Animal Hospital in Frankley.
Inspector Jonathan Ratcliffe, who rescued Primrose, said: “The bite marks on her head and neck are very nasty, there are some big puncture wounds, which leads me to think that she has been used as a bait dog in a fight and then someone has dumped her, although I am keeping an open-mind while my enquiries continue.
“She seemed very sad and she was quite dirty, with long claws so it appears she has been neglected.”
Jonathan is very keen to find out who owns the dog and where she came from. Anyone with any information is asked to call the RSPCA Appeals Line on 0300 123 898.
