Scottish SPCA: The dog is now being cared for by the animal welfare charity.

The Scottish SPCA has issued an appeal after a “frail” dog was found lying in the rain in a field.

The animal welfare charity was alerted to the male Staffie-cross by a member of the public on Saturday.

The dog was spotted in a field next to Crowlin Crescent, Glasgow.

It is now being cared for at the Scottish SPCA’s animal rescue and rehoming centre in Dunbartonshire.

Judy Button, the centre’s manager, said: “The brindle and white Staffie-cross came to us as a stray on November 20, and we are appealing to anyone who might know him or recognise him.

“He is microchipped to the Dumfries area, but unfortunately the phone number is incorrect. According the microchip, his name is Tyro.

“Tyro is a friendly, older dog and is sadly quite frail. He is estimated to be 11-years-old.

“We are only able to hold animals as strays for seven days while we try and trace their owners, and after this time as long as they don’t need additional care or treatment they are made available for rehoming.”
