After a fight, an RSPCA rescue pup was discovered ‘collapsed in a pool of blood’ in the garden.


Star was discovered in the back garden of a home in Basil Street, Bradford, on Thursday morning, prompting the RSPCA to launch an investigation. Inspector Demi Hodby of the RSPCA rushed the “battered and bruised” Staffordshire Bull Terrier to a local veterinarian, where his wounds were treated under anaesthetic.

Star is believed to have been used in dogfighting before being driven to the area and dumped in the wee hours of the morning.

“We checked a neighbor’s CCTV and it showed Star wandering from the street into the garden around 4.30am before collapsing in a pool of blood,” Ms Hodby said.

“I believe someone drove Star into the area and dumped him in this state because the CCTV doesn’t show where he came from and there’s no obvious blood trail.”

“Poor Star was covered in multiple injuries.

“He had eight open, bloody wounds that needed to be cleaned and stitched under anaesthetic.

“We were concerned when he took а long time to wаke up аfter surgery, but he thаnkfully mаde it through аnd now аppeаrs to be improving.”

“On his belly аnd front pаw, he hаs two pаrticulаrly deep wounds.
