Puppies abandoned on doorstep in Potters Bar

THREE puppies were left abandoned in a small brown cardboard box on a doorstep in Potters Bar.

A pensioner found the 10-week-old dogs on the driveway of his home in Oakmere Avenue on Wednesday morning last week.

The beige and white male puppies have fleas, worms and are underweight.

RSPCA inspector James Bromley took the dogs to RSPCA Southridge Animal Centre in South Mimms – where they have since been named Huey, Dewey and Louie.

Mr Bromley said: “These puppies could easily be in a much worse state, especially given the cold weather we’ve had recently.

“Whoever dumped them had little regard for their well-being and we need to speak to them as soon as possible.”

He added: “If the owner cannot be found, the puppies will be rehomed.”
