TWO men abandoned a dog and left it tied to a wooden fence by a boot lace in Rosyth.

The Scottish SPCA said the saluki cross type dog was found outside International Decorative Surfaces, at Caledonia Heights, on Wednesday May 9.

She has been named Scampi and is now being cared for at the charity's centre in Edinburgh.

SSPCA Inspector Nicola Liddell said: “Other than an injury to her ear, Scampi is doing well.

“The caller advised us that two men got out of a black Mondeo, tied her to the fence, took a picture and then drove away.

“If anyone can shed any light on who owns this dog we would urge them to contact us.”

She added that abandoning an animal is an offence under the Animal Health and Welfare (Scotland) Act 2006 and anyone found guilty of doing so can expect to be banned from keeping animals for a fixed period or life.

Anyone with information can contact the SSPCA animal helpline on 03000 999 999.
