A DALMATIAN dog has been found alone and freezing cold at a bus stop in Hampshire.

The RSPCA has launched an appeal to find the owners of the dog, named Harvey, who may be missing from owners in Wales.

Harvey was found at a bus stop near Shedfield Common, and was taken by a member of the public to Animed Veterinary Practice in Shedfield, where vets struggled to register his temperature because he was so cold.

The dog, believed to be around three-years-old, was so weak he could barely lift his head or wag his tail, and was suffering from severe diarrhoea.

He knows his name and is microchipped with a registered address in Ynysybwl, Pontypridd - however the phone numbers on the chip are not recognised.

RSPCA inspector Tina Ward is now appealing to the public to help trace his owners.

She said: "Animed have done a fantastic job helping Harvey and he has already made so much progress. He is now at an RSPCA centre to continue on his road to recovery.

"We are desperate to know how he came to be in this state and where his owners are.

"We hope someone in Wales or in the Hampshire area may recognise him and come forward. You can call our inspectorate line in confidence on 0300 123 8018."
