A King Charles Spaniel was discovered in a 'terrible condition' including an infection which could leave her partially blind.

She was discovered unneutered leaving investigators to suspect she was previously used for breeding but then left stray in Charing until being found on September 15.

Vets in Ashford were able to examine her before contacting the RSPCA who are continuing to look into the matter and appeal for more information.

Inspector Clive Hopwood said: “This poor dog was in such a sorry state; she had terrible teeth, awful eye infections – which may well leave her partially sighted – and horrible skin condition.

"Someone has clearly neglected her for some time."

Olive might be left blind or partially sighted

Now named Olive, she is thought to be around five years old and will remain at the vets receiving care until she is considered well enough to move to an RSPCA rehoming centre.

Inspector Hopwood said: “She was unneutered so we suspect she may have been used for breeding in the past and has received a very low standard of care.

"She was microchipped but the chip was not registered and the chip company told us they could not pull any usable data from her account.”

“It looks like she’ll need to have some teeth removed and her eyes and skin will require considerable treatment; we don’t know yet if she’ll be able to see once her eyes have recovered."

“To allow her to get into this state is totally heartless. I’d like to speak to anyone who recognises her or who may have information as to who was responsible for her care."

Call the RSPCA on 0300 123 8018 and leave a message if you can help with their ongoing enquiries.
