A 10-week-old puppy has been rescued after being found abandoned next to a road between Haddenham and Stone.
‘Bugle’, as staff at the RSPCA’s Blackberry Farm centre near Aylesbury have named him, was found tied to a lamp post by a passer by on the evening of October 9.
The cross breed was cared for overnight by the person who found him before being taken to the centre the next day.
RSPCA inspector Andy Eddy said: “We are not sure exactly which road Bugle was found on as we haven’t been given that information but we believe it was Ford Road, which runs between Haddenham and Stone.
“We need to find out who left this young puppy there as, if it wasn’t for the kind actions of this passer by, he may not have been found and could have suffered.
“As it was, he was left frightened and alone by the very person who was supposed to care for him.”
RSPCA staff say Bugle is doing OK and a vet check has not revealed any problems.
If his owner does not come forward a new home will be sought for him.
Anyone with information about who abandoned Bugle should contact the RSPCA on 0300 123 8018.
