The Scottish SPCA has appealed for information after a dog was found dumped in the north-east with broken bones and a severe infection.
The female terrier cross, called Opal, was found in Fraserburgh with two broken bones in her right foot.
A member of the public discovered the dog and alerted the police, who then handed her into a local vet.
Senior Inspector Lesley Crockett said: “Opal is a lovely dog and has a great nature.
“Sadly she is in quite a lot of pain at the moment and has been suffering from this skin condition for some time.
“We would appeal to anyone who recognises her to contact us as we are keen to establish how she came to be in this condition.”
Anyone with information is being urged to contact the Scottish SPCA animal helpline on 03000 999 999.
