Can you help identify this dog?


Incident happened at 6.30am yesterday morning in Pallion, in a street in Sunderland, Tyne And Wear.

The RSPCA is appealing for information after a dog was seen being hit with a chain lead in a Sunderland street yesterday morning (Wednesday 3 January).

The dog - a female German shepherd-husky cross called ‘Delilah’ - slipped her lead during the incident at around 6.30am on Percival Street, Pallion and ran into a nearby garden.

The dog’s attacker ran away. She in now in RSPCA care.

RSPCA inspector Catherine Maddison said: “A man - described as white and wearing dark clothing - was seen hitting Delilah with a chain lead.

“She got away from him and into a nearby garden before the man ran off.

“Delilah is microchipped - which is how we know her name - but the telephone number is out of service and enquiries at the address on file suggest the owner has moved, after rehoming her, so we’re drawing a blank.”

Anyone who knows who owns Delilah or who saw anything yesterday morning and know who the man was is asked to call the RSPCA inspector appeal line on 0300 123 8018 and leave a message for inspector Maddison.

“Delilah has been checked over by a vet to make sure she’s okay. She has some marks on her face, but seems to be in good condition otherwise and is a lovely friendly dog,” said inspector Maddison.
