SSPCA inspector Robyn Gray said: “The dog is microchipped but unfortunately the details on the chip were registered to a veterinary practice in Edinburgh. We were able to trace the breeder through these details but sadly not her owner.
“We’re keen to find out how she passed away and came to be in this location. We’d also like to trace her owner so we can inform them of what’s happened to their dog if they are unaware that she’s passed away.”
Anyone who recognises the dog should call the SSPCA confidential animal helpline on 03000 999 999.
