Puppies dumped in crate on cold and frosty morning

Pupdate!

We're pleased to say that, after treating the pups skin condition and giving them a full health check, all three puppies have found their forever homes.

Dogs Trust is caring for three French Bulldog puppies after they were found abandoned in a crate in an alleyway without food, water or even a blanket to keep them warm. 

The adorable black pups, who are fifteen weeks old named Polar, Arctic and Chilly by the Dogs Trust team, were found by a member of the public in an alleyway behind houses in Widnes. They were immediately taken to Dogs Trust Merseyside who have been caring for them for the past few days. 

Georgina Lowery, Manager at Dogs Trust Merseyside based in Huyton, said: 

“It is always shocking when dogs are abandoned in this way, particularly on a cold winter’s day. Luckily, they were found before they came to any serious harm. 

“They are absolutely adorable. Unfortunately, they are being treated for a very uncomfortable skin condition which will have been developing for some time before they were abandoned, but we are hopeful they will make a full recovery. 

“We are now speaking to families who have been preparing to welcome a puppy into their life for some time, about giving them their forever homes.

"French Bulldogs are incredibly popular all year round.

“We don’t know why these puppies were dumped, but we believe a dog is for life, not just for Christmas and they deserve to be loved and cared for properly, every day of their lives. If anyone ever feels they have to give up their dog, please do speak to us for help and advice."
