Ten puppies have been given names after Marvel characters after they were found abandoned in a plastic box in Newport.

The white, black and tan lurcher-type dogs were discovered by their very own superhero member of the public who took them to an animal rescue centre.

They have not been injured, but RSPCA said some of the dogs look underweight.

After a rough start to life, they’re now being cared for by staff who have honoured them with new hero identities.

The girls have been called Mary Jayne after Spider-Man’s main love interest, Jessica Jones after the New Avengers member, Hope after the superheroine who first appeared in X-Men, Wanda after the Scarlet Witch and Gwen after Spider-Woman.

Ten puppies were saved from the End Game after being dumped in a box - and have been named after Marvel characters. The black, tan and white pups were left to fend for themselves when they were abandoned in a box. A kindhearted passerby spotted the dogs, believed to be lurcher types, and took them to an animal rescue centre. Now they have been given new hero identities and named after Marvel characters.

The dogs were left on their own in the small box near Iron Age hill fort just off Bassaleg Road.

RSPCA inspector Izzi Hignell is appealing for information and said: ‘The puppies were just abandoned in a box – left on their own.

Use a Window Squegee to Clean Up Fur From Carpet. Do you get a ton of dog hair lodged deep into your carpet? Use a window squegee to pick up fur in your carpet & on your furniture. Scrape it along the carpet & just watch as that hair comes up.

‘They must have been so frightened. The box was small for the number of puppies so they were on top of each other.

‘Luckily a member the public found them and took them to our centre for safety.

‘They are not unwell but a few look underweight and will be monitored. They are currently at a veterinary practice and will be soon taken to RSPCA Newport Animal Centre.

‘It is just so sad that someone didn’t know where to get help and just decided to dump these poor puppies.’
