The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in England is looking for the guy who abandoned a blue merle Greyhound with life-threatening injuries. The dog was presumably attacked by another dog and had a gaping cut in the chest.
When questioned by a woman who spotted the man walking the injured dog, he stated that he intended to abandon the dog at a Leeds estate. The woman acted quickly, sending the dog to a 24-hour vet clinic where he underwent surgery for the nearly 12-inch long wound.
The vet noticed that the dog has a microchip and is named Blue during the checkup. However, when staff contacted the family whose microchip was registered, they stated they had sold Blue 18 months prior. Emma Ellis, an animal rescue inspector, is now investigating the case and discovering the person responsible for putting the dog in such a state.
Ellis told Leeds Live that she is eager to discover Blue’s owner and encourages anyone with information to contact her. According to her, the dog has a distinct appearance, and she is convinced that someone will recognize him. She believes he may have resided in the vicinity where he was discovered.
Ellis also disclosed that someone had attempted to glue Blue’s wound shut to avoid veterinarian treatment. According to Ellis, Blue was injured after being attacked by another dog. Someone tried to glue the injury but did not take him for immediate medical care even though he was clearly in need of assistance. Blue was fortunate to survive because his wounds were so severe, and losing so much blood.
The suspect was white, tall, and with dark hair, as described by the woman who saw him. He was dressed in a blue coat and dark sweatpants and was in his early twenties. The RSPCA urges anyone with information on the guy or the dog to contact them as soon as possible.
Blue is now safe and sound at the RSPCA’s Greater Manchester Animal Hospital. While no one knows for sure what atrocities Blue endured at the hands of humans, it is evident that Blue is grateful to be alive.
