The RSPCA is investigating after a dog was found wrapped in a blanket, barely alive, in a ditch by the side of the road in Melbourne’s outer west earlier this month.

As reported on the Rumour File this morning, the emaciated, female Bull Arab-type dog was found swarming with flees, across from a shopping centre on Ballan Road, Manor Lakes Monday March 11.

RSPCA Victoria’s Inspector Sarah Gilbert said a concerned local resident assumed the dog was dead until they saw the blanket move.

The dog was taken to U-Vet Werribee Animal Hospital, where she was examined for immediate health risks, and found to be anaemic due to heavy flea burden.

The animal was not wearing a collar and was not microchipped.

RSPCA Victoria is urging anyone who has knowledge or information relating to this incident to call 03 9224 2222 or visit rspcavic.org to make a report.
