Police are appealing for help to find the owner of a puppy found under a lorry with a broken leg in SE1.
Response team officer Nick Waller told the News that the white, male whippet, about six-months-old, was found in Rolls Road shortly after 8am today.
PC Waller said: “Someone called in this morning saying they could hear a dog.
“He was scared to come out and he had an injury. He cuddled up to my colleague in the back seat. He was awake but a very sad puppy really.
“We rushed him to the vet and they gave him a once-over, and he had a broken leg. He also had some scratches on his face.”
Local police tweeted about the rescue:

PC Waller added: “Someone must own the puppy, we’re looking for the owner to come forward.”
