RSPCA issue warning after dog described as a breeding machine found dumped in Cotgrave
A dog described as a breeding machine was found dumped.
The RSPCA Radcliffe has issued a warning to unscrupulous dog breeders after a dachshund was found stumbling down the middle of a busy road.
The charity said it believes Delilah the dachshund was abandoned because she could no longer have puppies.
After being found on Main Road, Cotgrave, she was taken to RSPCA Radcliffe where vets thought she had been hit by a car.
However, it was determined she had intervertebral disc disease as a result of having too many litters.
"She is a lovely little dog and she has been treated like this and just simply discarded like rubbish," said Ella Carpenter, animal centre manager at RSPCA Radcliffe Animal Centre.
Delilah is currently under veterinary treatment following her diagnosis confirmed by an MRI scan. She has a lengthy rehabilitation period before vets know what her long-term needs will be for rehoming.
RSPCA Radcliffe said Delilah is showing progress and getting stronger every day.
Two weeks on, she is doing assisted standing exercises and care assistants help to place her feet in position so she remembers where they should be.
