The RSPCA is appealing for the owners of an adorable elderly dog to come forward after she was thrown out of a moving car.
A man who was working nights saw a car slow down and a dog thrown out of it on 25 May.
He took the dog home overnight and then took her to the RSPCA the following morning.
Luckily the dog, named Beatrix, had no injuries, but she was very frightened.
Staff at the charity think the dog may have been stolen, although there is a chance her owner discarded her because they have not wanted the expense of her medical treatment.
They will hold on to the white and tan Jack Russell type dog for 28 days to see if anybody comes forward to claim her.
Vets believe she is elderly as she has dental issues and a large mammary mass.
Express yourself. Dogs’ ears are extremely expressive. It’s no wonder! There are more than a dozen separate muscles that control a dog’s ear movements.
Staff at the RSPCA Halifax, Huddersfield Bradford & District branch appealed on Facebook for anybody who may know her owners, writing: ‘This female dog was thrown from a car in the BD4 area. She may not be from this area.
‘Please share as there may be worried owners searching for her.
‘We believe she may have been stolen and then dumped.
‘She is not currently available for rehoming.
‘We will post an update on her when we have any news. For now, please keep sharing and hopefully we will find the owners.’
