A tiny puppy has died after being dumped outside in the freezing temperatures.

The little Akita pup, who was no more than two months old, was found by a member of the people suffering from a number of health problems.

When RSPCA Inspector Mike Scargill arrived at the scene in Alum Rock, Birmingham, he was shocked by what he saw.

A poorly puppy found dumped outside a block of flats in Birmingham has died. The Akita was found abandoned on Cottsmeadow Drive, Alum Rock, by a member of the public who last Sunday [November 18].

Despite rushing him to Birmingham Animal Hospital the puppy sadly died during an emergency procedure to help his prolapsed anus.

Inspector Scargill said: The poor puppy was clearly in a bad condition when I picked him up. He was thin, lethargic and covered in filth.

The problem with his anus was very obvious and this must have caused the pup suffering and distress.

Sadly the vet was unable to save him during an emergency procedure and he died on the operating table which is so sad.

I would like to trace who is responsible for just dumping this vulnerable pup in his hour of need and am appealing for information.



Anyone with information about who dumped the dog should call the RSPCA appeals line on 0300 123 8018.
