Roo is now being cared for by the RSPCA.
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 Vicki 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. She’s around four or five years old and is extremely friendly and sweet.
“The public saw her being thrown from the passenger door of a car. Unfortunately they didn’t get the registration,” Vicki added.
“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 now 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 information should call the RSPCA’s appeal line on 0300 123 8018.
