A tiny puppy has been found abandoned in a Redruth car park - and weighs the same as a chocolate bar.

The RSPCA says little Issey would not have lasted the night if she had not been found.

Now the charity is trying to find the woman who handed her in to get more information.
 
Issey weighs just 200g, the same as a Toblerone. She was taken to the vets by a woman on Friday who said she had found her in a car park off Fore Street.
 
Issey is believed to be a Yorkshire Terrier cross Shih Tzu type dog.

She is just three weeks old. Puppies are not normally separated from their mothers until they are eight weeks.
 
She was handed in in a cardboard box which had been cut down to size and which had a blanket in.

Vet nurse Emily Hicks helped treat her. She said: "Her eyes had only just opened. It's probably only just a few days they've been open for, so she wasn't quite aware of everything.

"I've never seen an abandoned puppy before like that."puppy

As the puppy was so small and not weaned she was taken home by RSPCA Inspector Felicity Cross for the weekend who with the help of a friend has been hand feeding the puppy every three hours.
 
Inspector Cross said: "We would really like to know how this puppy came to be left in this box.
 
"The poor thing is tiny and must have been very scared.

"She wouldn't have survived overnight so she was obviously found quickly.
 
"I'm concerned that there may be other puppies out there from the same litter who may have been left.
 
"We would urge anyone with information about this  - particularly the lady who found this puppy - to ring our inspectorate line on 0300 123 8018."
