Body of a burnt dog found dumped on a Sunderland Path has sadly died.

The images are too graphic police hour has chosen not to publish them.

It is unclear if the male Rottweiler Dog was killed and then set on fire or set on fire and left to die.

The RSPCA has now launched an investigation to find those responsible for the horrific attack on the dog.

Lisa Scott from animal charity Happier Days for Strays received a call from a member of the public to reports that a dog has been set on fire on the riverside pathway at South Hylton on Tuesday afternoon.

The dog was found half burnt and laid lifeless

Lisa confirmed that the dog has suffered an horrific attack and all of it’s “intestines were outside the body”.

RSPCA inspector Terry-Ann Fannon, said: “This was an absolutely horrible and upsetting thing to come across.

“At the moment we don’t know how this dog died, and whether he was set on fire before or afterwards.

“If anyone has any information at all about him, or saw anything that they think will help my investigation into what has happened here, please call the RSPCA inspector appeal line 0300 123 8018 and ask to leave a message for me.”
