New home needed for puppies dumped on Outwell river bank

Two puppies which had been abandoned on the river bank in Outwell need new homes.

Rosa and Laura were among a litter of puppies which were just a few weeks old and should not have been away from their mother when they were dumped on the river bank in October.

The pair have been cared for by staff at Eau Brink RSPCA rehoming centre, near Lynn, who are desperate to find them a new forever home together.

Penny Skate, centre manager, said: “They need someone who is quite young and active themselves as they need lots of walks and lots of activity.

“An individual, couple or family would be fine so long as they are at home most of the time.

“We don’t want them sitting here over Christmas. That would be tragic.”

The dog warden was called after the litter were found and took them to a vet for emergency treatment before passing them on to the rehoming centre.

Mrs Skate said: “When they came to us they were very underweight and generally in a very poor condition.”

A volunteer from the centre took the two weakest puppies but sadly one of them could not be saved. He had a digestive condition and was very unwell.

The three girls all made it through and one of them found a new home.

Since then Rosa and Laura have got well together and become the best of friends.

The pups, thought now to be about 10 weeks old, are crossbreed – possibly Jack Russel/Pugs, but certainly a small breed.

If they cannot be homed together the centre will have to consider allowing them to be separated.
