Abandoned Staffordshire Bull Terrier tied up with some blue nylon string

A young male Staffordshire Bull Terrier cross, was found this morning (Tuesday 29 January) tied up along a footpath.

The dog was found at the Elmfield Playing Fields, which runs adjacent to the Midwinter allotments in Cheltenham. He was tied up to some hedges with the use of blue nylon string.

Clive Evans, community protection officer at Cheltenham Borough Council, says:"
“We believe the same dog was taken to the Animal Shelter for rehoming shortly before he was found.

“We would like to try and establish why the dog had been left in the manner that he had. Any calls we receive will be dealt with in confidence.”

The dog is brindle in colour with a white chest and a white nose. If you recognise the description of the dog and might know who owns it please contact Clive Evans on 01242 264104.


Notes
The dog is being kennelled at the Animal Shelter in Gardeners Lane.
