A dog who was ‘left for dead’ with serious leg injuries is recovering at an RSPCA hospital.
Five-year-old Saluki Zach was found with serious injuries on Fambridge Road in Maldon earlier this month.
Zach suffered a broken leg and also had a nasty open wound. He will require surgery although vets hope to save the leg.
Police were also called to the scene after the driver of the car failed to stop following the accident.
