Wounded dog Roddy 'getting stronger' after being dumped near Malvern railway tracks

Malvern Editorial 19th Jan, 2024   0

A DOG who was discovered dumped in Malvern on Christmas Eve in so much pain he couldn’t stand is on the road to recovery.

Worcestershire Regulatory Services Animal Welfare Team was alerted by a member of the public who discovered ‘Roddy’ by the railway tracks.

The dog was treated by vets with antibiotics for his infected wounds and given much-needed pain relief.

He had been dumped on a duvet with a bowl of food in plummeting temperatures.

WRS Animal Welfare Officer Pip Griffin said:

“He was such a sorrowful state and was in so much pain he could barely stand let alone walk.

“I dread to think how long he had suffered for but whoever did this is cruel and inhumane.

“Please, if you have any information about Roddy and his story, get in touch.”

Roddy is luckily getting stronger each day thanks to medical care and lots of loving.

Pip added:

“People who have pets have to be responsible for their actions and if being a dog-owner is not for them, then get help. Don’t just dump a dog and leave their fate to chance.

“If Roddy had been discovered just a few hours later, I believe he wouldn’t be with us today which is such a waste of a loving dog’s life.”
