Say hello to unwanted Dolly at RSPCA Animal Centre
DIRTY, cold, wet and undernourished, surrounded by some of her dead puppies, this was how Staffordshire bull terrier Dolly was found by RSPCA inspectors. Rescued in March, Dolly had a pitiful existence before her life at RSPCA Southridge Animal Centre
DIRTY, cold, wet and undernourished, surrounded by some of her dead puppies, this was how Staffordshire bull terrier Dolly was found by RSPCA inspectors.
Rescued in March, Dolly had a "pitiful" existence before her life at RSPCA Southridge Animal Centre in South Mimms.
Kept outside in all weathers with her litter, just half of Dolly's puppies survived.
But since their stay at the animal centre all have recovered and been given new homes - except for their mother.

A spokeswoman for the Packhorse Lane centre told the Welwyn & Hatfield Times: "When the puppies went up for adoption people were almost fighting over them; not one person gave a second glance to the brave little dog Dolly who had almost given her all to save her puppies.
"Dolly wants a loving home, somewhere where she will be given the love and attention that she deserves."
