Two people walking home from New Year’s Eve celebrations saw the female brown Staffordshire bull terrier being thrown from the window of a dark-coloured Ford Focus in High Road at around 2am.

The car was travelling at around 40mph meaning the witnesses were unable to get the registration number, while the bitch was left terrified as a result of the incident.

She is now in the care of local dog wardens.

RSPCA inspector Rob Crutchley, who is investigating, said: “The dog had an injury to her leg as a result of the incident, which was immediately treated.

“It was very shocking for the two people who found her. The dog was terrified after her ordeal.

“She is not microchipped so we have no way of tracing where she came from. We’d also like to rule out whether she was stolen.

"We are keen to speak to anyone who has any information to get in touch with us in complete confidence on 0300 123 8018.”
