39-Year-Old Arrested and Charged for Abandoning Dogs Near Moffat

A significant development has unfolded in the case of the pack of dogs dumped in the Greenhillstairs area near Moffat in July.

This week it was reported that a 39-year-old man from Boston, Lincolnshire, had been arrested and charged in connection with the dumping of the dogs on the B719 road. The arrest comes months after the initial incident, shedding new light on the circumstances surrounding the abandonment of the dogs.

According to the police Facebook post, a report detailing the events will be submitted to the procurator fiscal as part of the ongoing legal proceedings.

Communities rallied together, raising thousands of pounds to support the rescue efforts. Police and volunteers worked diligently to stop traffic and rescue the dogs, which the Dumfries and Galloway Canine Rescue Centre subsequently took in.

This week, the Glencaple charity provided an update on the dogs’ progress—Brodie, Glenn, Meadow, Rae, Toffee, and Charlotte. As detailed on the charity’s Facebook page, all six dogs have made excellent progress. The spokesperson for the charity expressed, “It has been no easy task but with lots of love and dedication, these dogs now have a happy future ahead.”
