A DOG has been put to sleep after being found in a Paisley park in 'extreme' pain.

The Scottish SPCA found the Staffordshire bull terrier at Ferguslie Park on May 14.

She was suffering from an inflamed and ulcerated mass on her lip as well as other health problems.

Inspectors are now appealing for information about the dog, who had no collar or microchip.

Scottish SPCA inspector, Isla Bell, said: “The dog is an older female, and is mostly dark brindle in colour. She has four white paws and a white chest.

“She was not microchipped or wearing a collar or any tags.

“After a veterinary examination, it was discovered that she had an inflamed and ulcerated lip which affected her teeth.

"It had likely been this way for a long period of time and would have been extremely painful."

Due to the suffering the dog was experiencing, a decision was made to have her put down.

Inspector Bell added: “She also had overgrown nails and a number of other health conditions which were causing her an extensive amount of suffering.

“Sadly veterinary advice was given to put this dog to sleep due to the severity of her condition, as there was no way to fix the amount of pain she was in.

“If anyone recognises this dog or has any information on this incident they can contact our confidential animal helpline on 03000 999 999.”
