NINE dogs that were abandoned in such a poor state that they could not see or stand have been receiving treatment.

Eight puppies about one year old and their mother, aged about eight, were dumped on Tuesday evening.
Three of the dogs were found in Upham, three at Morestead Road, two at Owslebury and one at Alresford.
They have been taken into care by Winchester City Council and the RSPCA and have been receiving treatment from a vet. They have been clipped.
Dave Griffiths, senior animal welfare officer at the council, said: ‘Their coats were totally matted with solidified mud. They could hardly walk, see or stand – it was that bad.’
‘We would love to catch the person who has done this. It is a serious case of neglect.’
He urged anyone with information to e-mail
eh@winchester.gov.uk or or call the RSPCA on 0300 123 8018.
