RSPCA Cymru is appealing for information after two dogs were found in a serious condition, dumped in a metal basket in a Swansea park.
A Pug type dog and a Mastiff cross were found at Ravenhill Park on Sunday morning (30 October). Although both dogs were taken to the vets for immediate treatment, it was decided that Pug's condition was too severe and she was put to sleep to prevent further suffering.
The other dog, who has been named Henry, is currently receiving treatment for a skin condition.
RSPCA inspector Keith Hogben said, "Both of these dogs were found in a poor condition and needed urgent veterinary treatment. Sadly the Pug was in such a state the vet made the decision to put her to sleep. The eight-week-old had a serious skin condition and there were concerns with her heart.
"Poor Henry has an awful skin condition, but now he is receiving veterinary treatment we hope it will improve.
"If anyone has any information about these dogs, please contact the RSPCA inspectorate appeal line on 0300 123 8018. Calls are treated in confidence."
