Ella the leaping Lurcher

Ella the Lurcher is now full of beans and feeling happy after five weeks in the care of the RSPCA. You could say she's jumping for joy. She's bounding around, and looking far better than when she was found, abandoned, very underweight with lots of fur missing.

The future's looking bright for Ella.

The future may not be as happy for the person who abandoned her, tying her to a fence in Laburnum Grove in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire on the 9th of February.

The charity is still appealing for information in relation to the man seen in CCTV footage abandoning the Lurcher before running away.

Anyone with information can telephone the RSPCA’s inspector appeal line on 0300 123 8018.

When Ella was found, the freezing, skinny Lurcher was curled up on the floor in an effort to keep warm. Due to a skin condition, she had lost a lot of fur, which meant her skin was exposed to the harsh weather, leaving it even more sore than it had been.

Puppies survive being dumped in a bucket

A homeless hound at Battersea Dogs & Cats Home could be one of the loneliest dogs in the UK after spending over 260 days at the world famous animal charity and receiving little interest from potential owners.

The average stay for Battersea dogs is just 35 days, but four year old Lurcher Shadow has been at the rescue centre for over seven times that, making him the charity’s longest stay resident.
