Mystery of pedigrees found in Wales
Three pedigree dogs believed to be Apsos or Shih Tzu have been found wandering around a small town in Wales.
The trio, whose coats were so badly matted that their rescuers had difficulty in identifying their breeds, were found in a derelict building on 11 November in Conwy. Another female was picked up later in the same week.
RSPCA Inspector Kevin Paton said all dogs were in pain because of the matted condition of their coats. The dog is black and white and the two females cream and white.
Kevin continued: ‘I am hoping the public will be able to tell me where these dogs came from. They were not friendly when we first brought them into the centre but this was simply because they were in pain from the matts. Once shaved they became totally different dogs with lovely natures.’
It is believed the dogs hads been living together before they were found, though none were wearing collars and were not microchipped.
