Appeal for information regarding abandoned dog Early morning walkers have found a dog tied up in Witton Lakes in Erdington at approx 6am this morning. Our dog wardens were called and attended and found the dog to be in very poor condition, profoundly underweight, with overgrown nails and urine staining over its fur. The dog was wearing an oversized yellow reflective collar and was tied up with a red retractable lead. A man was seen entering the park on a bike last night and it seems this dog was with him. The man was then seen leaving the park some 15 minutes later, but without the dog. We do not know a time. We are appealing for information on the owner of the dog or for any other witnesses. Please call 0121 303 6007
We are pleased to say that Albert, the little dog found tied up in a very poor condition at Witton Lakes Park in Erdington last week, has been doing very, very well indeed. He has now left the dogs' home and is currently thriving at his foster home, as our video shows. A permanent home has now been found for Albert and he will move there shortly. Investigations are under way into how he came to be abandoned. Thank you to everyone who provided information or offered support.
