Dog dumped with giant testicular tumour in ‘worst condition RSPCA had ever seen’
RSPCA chiefs are on the hunt for a sick pet owner who left a dog abandoned in a park in what has been described as the “worst condition” ever seen.
The RSPCA inspectors have spoken out about the horrific scene they found in Birmingham on Sunday (March 5) and are now appealing for information.
A member of the public alerted the animal charity after discovering the pooch screaming in agony near Handsworth Cemetery.

The neglected male German Shepherd was left on top of a pink blanket and dumped in a bush with a huge testicular tumour and de-gloved jaw.
He was rushed to a vets where his condition was so bad that specialists had no choice but to put him to sleep to end his suffering.
And the RSPCA has now launched an appeal track down the owner responsible.
Animal rescue officer Cara Gibbon said: “This poor dog was in an atrocious state when he was found.
“As RSPCA officers, we see animals who suffered horrendous cruelty and neglect every single day but this poor dog was in the worst condition I have ever seen.
“He was making such pitiful whimpering noises and screaming in pain – he was unable to stand so we know he’d been deliberately abandoned.

“We also know he was dumped around 8am on Sunday morning so we’re really keen to hear from anyone who was in the area who may have seen this happening, or anyone with dash cam footage that could help our investigation.”
The dog was also unable to close its own mouth due to a horrific injury to his jaw.
Cara added that she was left “heartbroken” at the condition of the dog.
She said: “I was heartbroken to see someone had allowed a dog to suffer in this state and simply dumped him this way when he was most in need of help and care.
“This is the result of prolonged neglect over a long period of time so I’m desperate to find out who was responsible for allowing him to get this way before dumping him without thought or consideration to his welfare.”
Anyone who knows who owned the dog is urged to contact the RSPCA's appeals line on 0300 123 8018.
