Dog needs home after left tied to a lamppost

PUBLISHED: 13:26 22 December 2011




This week’s appeal is for a friendly male Rottweiler-cross who was discovered tied to a lamppost.

Starsky, who is about three-years old, was collected by the council. If they haven’t been claimed after seven days, the council can put strays to sleep.

Luckily, on the sixth day Starsky was rescued from certain death and is now in a safe foster home with Vicky Hallett who is a vet practice a manger.

Ms Hallett said: “Starsky’s a reasonably big boy, but thinks he is a lap dog. He has already proved that he is lovely with people, but initially can be nervous of some. He is very friendly with other dogs.”

Starsky has been fully vaccinated, microchipped and neutered.

If you can offer a home to Starsky in the New Year, please call Vicky on 07967 232914.
