A DOG dumped in woods in Bradwell has been given a new lease of life after being rehomed in Norfolk by the RSPCA.

Dotty, a female black and tan wire haired cross-breed, was found tied to a tree in woods near Whimbrel Drive with another dog in February.

Sadly, the other tan-coloured dog had to be put to sleep as it was seriously ill and believed to be suffering from parvo virus.

Dotty was found to have a flea allergy, but otherwise considered to be healthy, although she had to be kept in isolation for a few days in case she showed any signs of the parvo virus or any other illness.

The RSPCA has been appealing for information about the dogs.

An RSPCA spokesman said: “Dotty has been rehomed by the RSPCA and has settled well with a new family in the Norfolk area. She is doing really well and went to her new home about a week ago.

“As yet, we have not received any further information, but we will continue to respond to any further calls if they come in.”

Anyone with information should contact the RSPCA in confidence on 03001 234999.
