Young dog with mange left chained to railing in Tullamore

Offaly SPCA are appealing for information after a dog covered from head to feet with untreated mange was discovered chained to a railing in Tullamore yesterday morning (Thursday).

The Staffordshire dog that dog warden Michelle Fox has estimated to be about a year old was found on Chancery Lane by members of the public, who quickly alerted Offaly SPCA. Michelle was on the scene at about 11am.

The neglected dog has been treated by a vet, and has today gone into temporary care. It’s thought it’ll take about six months for her to return to full health however.

Despite her poor health, Michelle said the female dog was friendly, and happy to see her rescuers. “She jumped into the van no bother at all,” she said.

Michelle said she has little hope of the dog’s owner coming forward. Anyone with information in relation to the case however is asked to contact a garda station or Offaly Dog Pound on 057 9351181.
