Staffordshire Bull Terrier was abandonded next to communal bins in Griffin Close
An animal welfare charity is appealing for help in trying to track down the owner of a dead dog which was left dumped with horrific injuries in Willesden.
The dog, a female, chocolate brown, Staffordshire Bull Terrier was found wrapped tightly between two rubbish bin liners at the communal bins in Griffin Close.
She was found with deep puncture wounds to vast areas of her head, neck and chest and her ear had been chewed off. The Times has seen a photograph of the animal but has decided not to publish it due to its graphic nature.
It is believed she may have attacked by another dog and the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) is now trying to track down its owner.
Dale Grant, RSPCA inspector said: “Her injuries can only be described as horrific.
“A vet who examined her believed that only one other dog took part in the attack because there was a distinct lack of injuries to her hind quarters.
“There is no doubt that this little bitch perished in the most awful way so if anyone has any information which could help us find her owner please contact the RSPCA.”
The dog was lactating indicating that she had recently had a litter of puppies; she had a white blaze down the front of her chest.
She had no collar or microchip.
If you have lost a dog fitting this description or have any information about who her owner might be please call the RSPCA Inspector Information line on 0300 123 8018 and leave a message in confidence for inspector Grant.
To help the RSPCA investigate cases like this you can give £3 by texting the word HELP to 78866 (Texts cost £3 +one standard network rate message).
She was found on Tuesday April 16 but because of the routine for emptying the bins it is thought she could have been placed there anytime between Friday April 12 and Monday April 15.
