A starving pregnant dog has been handed into the police station in Fraserburgh.
The Scottish SPCA has launched an investigation after the young tan and white female lurcher was dropped off at the station on Saturday.
When found, the dog wasn’t wearing a collar – but she was wearing a yellow strap around her neck.
The Scottish SPCA have described the dog as”heavily pregnant and severely emaciated”.
She also has fleas, sores on her back legs and small cuts on her body. It is not known how long she has been fending for herself.
She is now however receiving the treatment she needs at a SSPCA rescue centre.
Scottish SPCA inspector Ally Campbell said: “The dog is a young, tan and white lurcher, who is heavily pregnant and severely emaciated.
“She was not wearing a collar when she was found, but did have a yellow strap around her neck.
“The poor dog also has fleas, sores on her back legs, and small cuts over other parts of her body.
“She is now receiving the care she needs at one of our rescue centres.
