THE RSPCA is trying to trace the owner of an emaciated dog found wandering in a park at Fremington.
A member of the public took the dog to a vet, who contacted the RSPCA because of its condition.
The dog was totally emaciated, quite heavily matted and dirty. Staff at the vets cleaned her up before photographs were taken. She had no collar or microchip.
The black and white spaniel cross has been aged by the vets at between six and seven years old. She is very friendly and knows basic commands, such as sit and paw.

RSPCA inspector Suzy Hannaby, who is investigating, said: "This is the thinnest dog I have ever seen which was still able to stand. She really was just skin and bone when I first saw her.
"I am very keen to trace the owner of this dog and find out how she came to be in this state and also ensure that no other animals are suffering in this way."
