He was sad and soggy when he arrived at the RSPCA centre last year, but now Cedric has been nursed back to health and is in need of a loving new home.
The springer spaniel wandered into the reception at Woodside Animal Centre, in Braunstone Frith, during a dramatic thunder storm on December 30.
Reception supervisor Iain Dilley said: "He was wringing wet, just skin and bones. We think he was dumped at the top of the road."
Cedric is believed to be about 10 years old but is "happy and waggy and has lots to give.
"He just needs a new home to see out his twilight years, but he is not an old man," said Iain.
"He is deaf but it only means he needs to be addressed from the front, and kept on an extender lead for walks."
Cedric loves children and would be ideal for a home with youngsters aged five and over. He can go to a house with other dogs and also cats.
To adopt Cedric or another pet from the RSPCA in Leicester, visit Woodside Animal Centre in Scudamore Road, or call 0116 233 6677.
