The body of an emaciated dog was found abandoned on a street in West Dunbartonshire.
The whippet cross lurcher, understood to be named Storm, was discovered at around 4.30pm on Tuesday, January 31, by a member of the public on a path near Cornock Street in Clydebank who contacted the Scottish SPCA.
The animal charity advised them to contact the dog warden, who would get in touch with the charity should there be suspicious circumstances around the animal’s death.
The dog’s remains were brought to the Scottish SPCA (SSPCA) “very emaciated and in poor condition”.
SSPCA inspector Jennifer Connolly said: “The dog is a female, tan, whippet cross lurcher who is three years old. She was wearing a black collar.
“We have had dealings with this dog previously and her name at that time was Storm.
“Unfortunately we have been unable to get in touch with Storm’s previous owner as the contact details we have for them are out of date.
“We believe they rehomed the dog last year and we’d encourage them to come forward as they could help us piece together details of what happened to Storm since she left their care.
“If anyone recognises this dog or has any information, we would ask that they contact our confidential animal helpline on 03000 999 999.”
