A terrified ten-week-old puppy with mutilated ears was discovered abandoned on a doorstep on a freezing cold night. The adorable puppy, dubbed Marlowe had parts of both of his ears cut off and had been left outdoors shivering on one of the coldest nights in the year in Bradley Stoke. Bristol on Wednesday.
According to the Bristol Post, the puppy also was lame in his hind leg and had no nails on his front paws. The RSPCA has launched an investigation. The animal cruelty officer, Chris James named the pooch Marlowe after a homeowner found the pup on her front stoop and called for help.
The puppy is being treated at the Bristol Animal Rescue Center. Veterinarian Damian Pacini described the cuts as having been done intentionally and cut in straight lines around a third of the way down each ear. Marlowe is recovering and is expected to be ready for adoption soon. Get well soon sweet little puppy.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the RSPCA. There are concerns about Marlowe’s litter mates.
