Severely matted dog found dumped in the middle of the night

A poodle, who was so matted he could barely see, was recently taken to animal welfare charity Mayhew after being dumped in the middle of the night.

The 10-year old Poodle was discovered by a member of the public roaming the streets on the busy North Circular road in North West London.

The concerned member of the public called the police after noticing the dog was wandering into the road and nearly getting hit by oncoming traffic.

The police took the exhausted dog, named Brian into the Mayhew rehoming centre where he was looked after by the team.

After being clipped, Brian was seen to be Mayhew’s vet team and was given a thorough health check, vaccinations and flea and worming treatment.

Mayhew’s animal welfare officer, Tania Mazzoni, said: “When Brian first arrived he was so matted that he kept bumping into walls because he couldn’t see properly. The poor poodle even had excrement caught up in his fur and was filthy.

“We don’t know how long he’d been walking the streets of North West London for, but he was exhausted, and finally feeling safe, he fell asleep while our kennels team were clipping him.”

Mayhew hopes that with their help, Brian will recover and will then find the happy ending that he deserves.
