A spaniel which was left ‘crying’ on a Lincolnshire roadside with a fish and chip shop bag of her dead puppies has found a new home.
As previously reported, the heartbreaking scene was discovered by local councillor Paul Midville who photographed the dog “with tears in her eyes” as she hustles a bag containing the dead puppies.
The dog, since named Carly, was taken to Fen Bank Greyhound Sanctuary for care and an investigation was launched by the RSPCA in order to trace the owner.
The RSPCA East Lincolnshire branch has now issued a statement confirming the spaniel has found a new forever home.
A spokesperson said: “Thank you to everyone who has called offering this little dog a home. We have been inundated!
“Just to let you know she is now safe and in a new home. Thank you all for your concern.”
It is unclear whether the puppies were stillborn or if they died as a result of the cold.
Anyone who recognises the dog or had any additional information is being asked to contact police on 101 or RSPCA on 0300 123 8018.
