The owner of a 16-year-old collie who abandoned her dog with a massive, bleeding tumor on the side of his face in a garbage and feces filled home has been banned from keeping any pets for the next ten years.
Christine Daley, who lived in a house on Selby Street in Wallasey United Kingdom, pleaded guilty at Wirral Magistrate’s Court on Thursday to causing unnecessary suffering to a dog by failing to investigate and treat a lump on his face and failing to meet the needs of a dog by failing to provide a suitable environment between October 1 through October 25, 2016.
According to the Metro, the fire department forced their way into the abandoned home after receiving concerning requests about foul odors.
And there the crews found the collie, lying on the sofa in a room reeking of strong ammonia odors and with garbage, moldy food, feces and trash piled up at least two feet in every part of the residence. RSPCA Inspector Anthony Joynes described the situation:
“The fire crew could smell something very strong and unpleasant through the letterbox and were concerned that there was a dead body in the house, so they gained entry with the police. That’s when they found Timmy so they contacted us.
The good news – is that Timmy has since made a wonderful comeback, has been adopted and is living the relaxed and lazy life all senior dogs deserve.
