The dog, who has been named Susie by officers, was spotted by a passerby. The passerby called the RSPCA and took her to a vet.
She was then treated for a severe skin condition on her paws – which were tightly tied by football socks.
The vet said she was injured for a week and her leg had to be amputated.
Inspector Rebecca Goulding said: “We believe her leg had been broken for about a week before she was found, and the socks had been on longer because the broken leg also had a wound where a sock had been.”
“The poor girl is suffering from both sarcoptic mange and ringworm and was also emaciated. She was in a terribly sad state. She had to be sedated to get the socks off her.”
“She really is the sweetest thing, and hasn’t misbehaved once when she has been getting treatment.”
She was transferred to the RSPCA’s Greater Manchester Animal Hospital in Salford and has now been moved to an RSPCA branch where she is recovering.
Inspector Rebecca Goulding added: “Her skin conditions, which are contagious, mean she is having to be kept in isolation and is receiving daily treatment, and it looks as though her broken leg will need to be amputated as it had started to heal in the wrong position.”
“She is far from out of the woods yet, but she is receiving the very best care and veterinary treatment.”
Inspector Rebecca Goulding has urged people in Huddersfield to provide information about Susie and her owners who left her in this condition.
If you have any information regarding her owners, please call the RSPCA appeal line on 0300 123 8018.
