Dalmatian Found Alone in Freezing Weather, Appeal Launched

The RSPCA has launched an appeal to find the owners of a Dalmatian.

The Dalmatian, named Harvey was found alone and freezing cold at a bus stop near Shedfield Common in Hampshire.

He was then taken by a member of the public to Animed Veterinary Practice in Shedfield – vets there struggled to register his temperature as he was so cold.

Harvey, believed to be around three years old, also had severe diarrhea – he was so weak he could barely lift his head or wag his tail.

He knows his name and is microchipped with a registered address in Ynysybwl, Pontypridd – however the phone numbers on the chip are not recognised.

RSPCA inspector Tina Ward is now trying to find his owners.

Inspector Ward said: “Animed have done a fantastic job helping Harvey and he has already made so much progress.

“He is now at an RSPCA centre to continue on his road to recovery.

“We are desperate to know how he came to be in this state and where his owners are.

“We hope someone in Wales or in the Hampshire area may recognise him and come forward. You can call our inspectorate line in confidence on 0300 123 8018.”
