Brandy’s leg was slightly injured from being tied up

A puppy is recovering after being found tied up in a bin bag under some bushes. The tan and white cross-breed was found by a member of the public walking their dogs in Branston Water Park, Lichfield Road, Burton, Staffordshire.

The pets began sniffing in some bushes and it was only when their owner investigated that the 12-14 week old puppy, now called Brandy, was found.

His back and front legs were tied together but RSPCA staff has described him as a “little fighter”.

Brandy was taken to a vets and is now in the care of the RSPCA at Burton Animal Centre.

‘Strong character’

He appeared to have a deformed leg but after resting he has totally recovered, the RSPCA said. Yvonne Asker, from the centre said: “Thank goodness that the dogs sniffed out Brandy when they did.

“He has such a strong character, he is not shy, nor is he underweight and I believe all these factors helped save him.

“He really is a little fighter. I believe a weaker dog, such as the runt of a litter, would not have survived.” The RSPCA is appealing for information about the incident.
