The puppies are though to be cross-breeds, possibly part Staffordshire bull terrier (or 'Staffy'), a popular breed in the area. For now, they are under the care of the RSPCA and there is an appeal out for any information that could help them identify who abandoned the puppies:
"Anyone who may have information about this incident should contact the RSPCA on 0300 123 8018. Calls are treated in confidence."
Environmental protection manager from Flintshire County Council Scott Rowley added: "Flintshire County Council work hard to ensure that incidences of cruelty and neglect of unwanted puppies is a rarity rather than a regular occurrence within the County and we will work closely with the RSPCA on this case. Our Animal and Pest Control Officers actively promote responsible dog ownership and any resident wishing to seek advice can contact our dog warden team on 01352 701234 for further information."
