A dog has been tied to the gates of a kennel and left abandoned in a shocking case of neglect.
The male Staffordshire bull terrier was found attached to the gates of Babbington Hall Kennels in Awsworth, a village between Kimberley and Ilkeston, on Friday.
Tony Sanderson, owner of the kennels, said: "He was left in the cold with only one tin of food. Luckily we have a tin opener.
"The dog wardens have had no luck in finding out who did this.
"The poor dog."
Mr Sanderson wanted us to run an appeal to help find the pooch a loving home. If you think you can provide that, call the kennels on 0115 9324576
