No leads on who dumped Lola, the injured puppy in Langley

Many people have applied to adopt the Doberman pinscher

Lola, the Doberman pinscher puppy that was dumped in Aldergrove after a botched tail cropping, is doing well, with many people applying to give her a new home, says the SPCA.

“We have had many, many people who have handed in their applications to adopt her and I’m pretty sure that is already in the works,” said Marcie Moriarty, chief prevention and enforcement officer for the BC SPCA.

As for who inflicted so much suffering on Lola, that is still a mystery.

“We don’t have any promising leads as of yet, but we aren’t giving up,” said Moriarty.

Lola was abandoned at the side of the road at 264 Street and 64 Avenue on July 2.

The three-month-old pup was found by two Good Samaritans visiting from Alberta. They noticed her lying at the side of the road near some mailboxes and rushed her to the Abbotsford SPCA.

“The puppy was thin and her tail area was grossly swollen and infected – oozing puss and blood. She was clearly in a great deal of pain,” said Moriarty.

“Her tail had been wrapped tightly with a plastic zip tie, in an apparent effort to do a home amputation for cosmetic purposes. This was a barbaric act that caused needless suffering to an innocent puppy.”

Anyone with information about this case, is asked to call the BC SPCA Provincial Call Centre at 1-855-622-7722.
