A pair of dogs who were covered in faces have been rescued from on an isolated Flamstead lane.
The dogs, who have been named ‘Bonnie and Clyde’, were found on Friendless Lane on Thursday, 16 March.
RSPCA inspector Rachel Smith said: “The woman who found the dogs was driving when she saw what she thought was a badger at the side of the road.
“The animal wasn’t moving so she got out of her car to see if it was OK.”
What she found was a white spaniel-like dog.

Rachel said: “The dog looked clearly neglected.
“She got the dog in her car to take to the vet, and as she was doing so, a second dog came out of the bushes.

“They were both very thin, had faeces all over their bodies, and had extremely matted fur.”
The RSPCA say the fur had dreadlocks thicker than a thumb.
The women took them to a vet, who put them on IV fluids for two days.
They are now under the care of the RSPCA Southridge centre.
It is believed Bonnie, the white dog, is around five, and Clyde, a black spaniel, is around three.
Neither of them were microchipped, so there is no way of telling where they came from.
Rachel said: “This is an example of why microchipping is important.
“Bonnie and Clyde may have been stolen or escaped, but we will not be able to find out where they came from without relying on the public to give us more information.”
