As you might imagine, this poor puppy is pretty frightened and is currently receiving the attention he needs to hopefully survive his ordeal and recover entirely.
Please seek assistance. When there are no other options, we can help folks rehome their pets.’
On the RSCPA’s social media platforms, followers were outraged by the dog’s treatment.
