A six-month-old puppy has been found dead in a Colchester car park, sparking an RSPCA appeal.
The black and tan Chihauahua-type dog was found dumped near the recreation ground in Port Lane, with a pink and white spotty blanket.
He had a suspected broken leg and an injury to his neck, head and right ear - which he may have had for some time.
RSPCA inspector Caroline Richardson-Braun wants to find the owner of the dog, who she understands may have only had him for a few weeks.
She said: "I really want to speak to anyone who knows where this dog has come from and find out why he was dumped with suspicious injuries.
You may also want to watch:
"I do not believe he has crawled there himself and died, he appears to have been abandoned at this spot, with his blanket - he may also have still been alive when he was left, which is just heartbreaking."
Anyone with information should call the RSPCA inspector appeal line on 0300 123 8018.
