A tragic dog which was "riddled with cancer" has sadly died after being found dumped by their owner.
The pooch was found by 34-year-old Jodie Jamieson in the front garden of her house in Kirkby-in-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire.
Jodie initially contacted the RSPCA and later confirmed in a Facebook post that the dog had been put to sleep.
As the poorly pooch was not microchipped the owner who abandoned it has not been tracked down so far.
Jodie also contacted Doggy Dens UK Rescue, operated by Denise Hardwick, which helps with similar cases in both the UK and Macedonia, reports NottinghamshireLive.
Denise condemned the dog's death as an "act of cruelty", saying: "Unfortunately, yes, I do know how it ended, the vets had to put her to sleep. Apparently, she was riddled with cancer and so they put her to sleep. Nice of the owner to dump her.
"We actually don't know anything about her, she wasn't microchipped so there's no trace of any owner. The only thing that I suggested was to ask around if anybody has CCTV in the street maybe we could see who it was that tied him up.
"It is an act of cruelty at the end of the day. Unfortunately, it's something we see more often than probably people are aware of.
"There was a similar case last year where I went to pick up a dog in Wakefield that had been dumped. She was almost blind when I picked her up but we managed to raise £4,000 and get her to the hospital in Wakefield.
"The veterinary nurse finally adopted her and she's living with her and regained full sight. People are people, they're never going to change, are they."
Jodie originally set up a gofundmepage which was created to help care for the dog before vets put her to sleep.
On her Facebook page, Jodie wrote: "The RSPCA has just been to see me and confirmed the dog has been put to sleep, she was absolutely riddled with cancer.
"I'm gutted, poor baby. I hope she is at peace now."
