Brighton dog abandoned outside supermarket finds home

Morris, named by staff at RSPCA Brighton after he was tied up and abandoned outside Morrisons, underwent extensive surgery when he was rescued by the animal charity.

The pocket bully, who had his ears cut off and could barely walk without struggling, was confirmed to be a victim of irresponsible breeding.

A spokesperson for the RSPCA Brighton said: “He had his ears cut off, could not walk across a room without struggling for breath and had numerous other health issues.

“But he has the most adorable, easy going nature and everyone here immediately falls in love with him.

“After undergoing extensive surgery to ease his breathing he is now able to waddle happily along and play with other dogs without struggling to get enough water.

“The best news ever is that he has found a fabulous home with a family.

“We miss him a lot but we are so happy for him.”

Since being rescued, Morris has settled into a home with other dogs and has had “lots of cuddles”.

The Patcham branch cares for some 600 animals, birds and reptiles each year and works to help pets in the community.

As a separately registered branch of the RSPCA, the team in Brighton is responsible for raising its own funds to deliver animal welfare from Worthing to Seaford and up to East Grinstead.

The next fundraising event is a summer fair to be held in June.
