SIX tiny black puppies were found dumped in a black plastic bag near private boarding kennels in Norfolk.
The bag was discovered early yesterday morning by a member of staff at the kennels near King's Lynn after they saw the bag moving. It is thought they had been left there some time during the night.
The puppies are aged between a week and 10-days-old and still have their eyes shut.
There are three males and three females and they are thought to be Labrador-type dogs.

RSPCA rehoming coordinator for the Norfolk West branch, Penny Skate, said: “The puppies are being cared for by fosterers and are responding well to being hand-fed. We are extremely concerned for the welfare of their mother as she would still be producing milk to feed them and could develop an infection or complications.*
“Also, it is worrying to think about how the mother dog is being cared for if the owner is capable of dumping six tiny puppies with little thought for their well-being.”
