There will be no happily-ever-after for a paralyzed puppy who was abandoned on Christmas Day in Bradford, West Yorkshire. As reported by the Mirror U.K., the five-month-old puppy was found in a cardboard box which was left in an alley.
Who dumped the puppy?
There is speculation that a breeder may be behind the cruel abandonment of the disabled puppy. RSPCA Inspector Dave Holgate stated:
“He was collapsed at the rear and was dragging his back legs. It seems as though his back end was paralysed and he was unable to use his legs. Goodness knows how long the poor pup had been in this state – he may have been born like this or could have deteriorated as he grew. “I suspect he was abandoned by the breeder when they realised he would need expensive veterinary treatment or would fail to sell.”
Veterinarians who examined the pup determined that he was unlikely to recover so the decision was made to euthanize him. The inspector stated:
“It’s so sad that we weren’t able to save this little puppy but I’m just glad he’s no longer sat inside a cardboard box cold, frightened and in pain. At least he felt love and compassion in his final hours.”
