Appeal after elderly dog found on Aberdeenshire road dies
An appeal for information has been made after an elderly dog found in a "terrible" condition at the side of a road in Aberdeenshire died.
A member of the public spotted the male collie cross-type dog - thought to be at least 14 - by the A957 at Durris.
He was taken to the Scottish SCPA's rescue and rehoming centre but died.
Ch Insp John Carle said: "It may be he had strayed away from home but there's also a possibility he was abandoned when he desperately needed help."
