German Shepherd puppy Flynn was just eight-weeks-old when he was dumped in a Birmingham park
A tiny puppy found unloved and unwanted in a park is looking for a new home where he’ll be loved for the first time.
German Shepherd Flynn was found by a dog warden in a Birmingham park on 7 October and taken in by the RSPCA.
He was taken in by The Cotswolds Dogs and Cats Home - run by the RSPCA South Cotswolds branch.
Fundraising manager Jane Ellis said: “Poor little Flynn must have been so frightened and confused. He was only tiny, weighing in at just 3kg, when he was found wandering alone having been abandoned in a park.
“He had some abdominal pain and his back was covered in scabby wounds due to an untreated skin condition so he’s had treatment for that and is now feeling much better.”
Flynn, thought to be around nine-weeks-old, is now ready to find his new home.
Jane added: “Flynn is a real baby and a typical puppy; he chews everything (shoes are a favourite!) and he’s very bright and bouncy. He’s very cheeky and very active so will need a home with owners who can keep him busy.
“He’s not had the best start in life and needs an experienced owner who can show him the ropes and continue his training and socialisation. He’ll make such a wonderful pet and a fabulous companion.”
The care of puppies like Flynn come at a huge cost to The Cotswolds Dogs and Cats Home as staff provide food, equipment and medical care. They need microchipping, flea and worming treatment, and neutering before they can go off to their new homes.
To help the centre support Flynn and his other friends and the centre please visit www.cdch.org.uk to donate.
Find out more about Flynn online. We expect Flynn will be very popular which means that, unfortunately, staff may not be able to respond to all individual applications. If you are suitable then the centre will be in touch within seven days.
As part of our rehoming drive this October - called Adoptober - we want to shine a light on all of the dogs in our care and encourage people to adopt instead of shop.
