A DOG was found dumped in the street days after giving birth to a litter of puppies.

The young Staffordshire Bull Terrier was discovered by a member of public in South Green Road, Fingringhoe, on Friday.

It is feared the unchipped bitch, around three years old, was used to breed puppies to sell on.
