Boris, an emaciated dog with a chronic skin condition and a ‘painful’ ear infection has been found abandoned in Edinburgh car park, according to BBC News.
The black, male spaniel dog was discovered on Saturday evening in a car park near Trinity Academy by Craighall Road. Although the dog was wearing a brown collar with ‘woof’ on it, it has been impossible to find the dog’s owner as it did not have any identity tag or microchip. According to the officials, the dog weighs only 10kg that is 4 kg underweight. The dog is feeling well and is being cared for at the charity’s Edinburgh and Lothians Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre in Balerno, where staff has named him Boris.
