New Ross Standard - - NEWS -

A PUPPY was saved from cer­tain death in New Ross and is now thriv­ing.

Smi­ley was about to be thrown into the Bar­row river when a passerby res­cued her and brought her to Bar­bara Mooney of the Sun­set Ap­peal.

The col­lie whip­pet cross was ‘skin and bone’ and se­verely mal­nour­ished when she was brought to Ms Mooney’s Bal­ly­cul­lane home.

‘She was ab­so­lutely ter­ri­fied. You had to be very care­ful when you picked her up as she screams the place down. she will wet her­self. I re­ported the mat­ter to the gar­daí.’

Ms Mooney said Smi­ley is go­ing to her ‘for­ever home’ this week where she will be well cared for by a fam­ily.
