Dog rescued after being thrown from car

A skinny, matted dog is receiving treatment and care after being thrown from a car in Birmingham.

The RSPCA has launched an investigation after a tiny dog was brought into the charity’s Newbrook Farm Centre and Hospital on Thursday (13 August).

Inspector Vicky Taylor, who is now investigating said: “This poor little dog was brought in by a member of the public after being thrown from a car in Warren Lane near Lickey Hills car park. She was emaciated and extremely matted. She was in a real state.”

The crossbreed, who has been named Roo by staff, is not microchipped and is thought to be around four or five years old.

Vicki added: “The public saw her being thrown from the passenger door of a car. Unfortunately, they didn’t get the registration. She was wearing a collar and lead when she was abandoned but the collar was for a large dog and was much too big for her.

“She’s now safe and has had her neglected coat groomed and all of the mats have been removed. Now you can see how skinny she really is under all of that fur.”

While staff take care of Roo, Vicki has launched an investigation into who is responsible for abandoning her.

Anyone with any information should call the RSPCA’s appeal line on 0300 123 8018.
