The puppy was found by a passer-by in Bennett Street on January 27.

Alongside the 14-week-old, black and white dog was a selection of brand-new equipment needed to look after a new dog – including a bed, dog food, dog training paraphernalia and a teddy bear.

The puppy was taken to the RSPCA’s Blackberry Farm Centre in Buckinghamshire.

And an RSPCA spokesman said: “We’re very hopeful that he is soon going to a new home. A family has expressed an interest and we are carrying out a ‘home-check’ before he can leave the animal shelter.”
