New home needed for ‘no hope’ ca­nine dumped with bro­ken leg

Stockport Express - - News -

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.
