The owner of an animal rescue centre in Flintshire has criticised "callous" owners who left an abandoned dog chained overnight in snow.

John Morris said the Jack Russell terrier - nicknamed Frosty - was found chained outside the North Clwyd Animal Centre, Trelogan, on Wednesday morning.

It had been tethered with a metal chain and "just dumped".

Mr Morris said: "It was a very callous thing to do. You have to be heartless to do a thing like that."

The male dog, thought to be about two years old, is believed to have been left on Tuesday evening, and was found at 07:15 GMT on Wednesday.

Mr Morris, who hopes to re-home the animal, said: "There wasn't much snow overnight, but there was already snow on the ground and it was freezing.

"The dog had just been dumped in the snow and chained."
