The RSPCA is looking for the owner of a pregnant dog suffering from a severe eye condition.

Juno, the name of the Bulldog, is microchipped and was discovered along the Lewisham High Street junction at Courthill Road on Friday (23 March) at 11am.

The dog is around six-year-old and suffers from a severe "cherry eye" condition in both eyes, which interferes with her vision.

RSPCA Inspector Nicholas Wheelhouse said: "We are appealing to anyone who may recognise Juno or who may have known who owns her. She is microchipped and we are trying to get hold of the registered owner, but it could be a case that she has been passed on to a new owner and the chip was not updated.

"She is quite nervous but this is likely because the cherry eye condition means that she has restricted vision and therefore not aware of what is happening around her. We hope that we will be able to operate on her eyes, but this won't be possible yet, as we don’t want to put her body under further stress while she is pregnant."

Juno will now require an operation on both eyes, but this will be delayed until she has given birth.

She is now staying with a fosterer for the rest of her pregnancy.

Anyone with information about Juno is asked to call the RSPCA on its confidential helpline 0300 123 018.
