New home needed for ‘no hope’ canine dumped with broken leg
A DOG that was dumped with a ‘badly broken leg, fleas, worms and little hope’ is in need of a foster home in the Stockport area.
Two-year-old Saluki Flo beat the odds to survive and has had a bone graft – taking bone from her shoulder to fix her broken hock – and a skin graft.
She is now in need of bed rest with careful, controlled exercise until her wounds have healed.
Charity Finding Furever Homes is on the lookout for someone willing to take her in for 12 weeks and give her the rest and recuperation time she needs.
She needs a quiet, calm environment with no children, cats or energetic dogs and it has to be in the area of Stockport, Cheadle, Wilmslow or south Manchester so she can attend her follow-up appointments with the vet.
Andrew Newton from the charity said: “Little Flo has beaten the odds and ended up having very expensive and clever surgery to fix her badly busted leg and now we need somewhere for Flo to go from next week where she can get lots of love and attention and continue to heal.”
The charity will cover all the fosterer’s costs. For more information visit findingfurever homes.org.uk.
