The male white-and-tan dog, thought to be aged around one, was found by a couple walking near Brill Windmill, on Monday (4 April) afternoon. He had no collar or lead.

The RSPCA’s Chief Inspector for Buckinghamshire, Rob Hartley, said: “The two people who found him waited with him for an hour to see if any owners came looking for him. They also asked passers-by if they recognised him but nobody did.

“The poor little lad - who we have named Murray - had overgrown claws and a flea allergy. He is not microchipped either, so we have no idea where he came from.
