Meet Dolly, our new sponsor dog. She has come to us via a vet, and little is known about her previous life but we think she is about 3 years of age. However, she is a beautiful chocolate brown working cocker, and it looks as though she has spent all her life so far being used for breeding. It is increasingly obvious that she has never been in a house before, so probably lived in a shed. She is in foster now, and is learning all about house living. She has discovered that there are other dogs living in the mirrors and glass, which she finds very disturbing. Strangely enough they look just like her! She has terrible mastitis which is being treated with special baths, cream and antibiotics,and her skin has been flaking off. The fur under her chin is missing possibly from rubbing against a rope. She has terrible cuts on her belly. She is very caring of the teddy she has been given, treating it like a puppy. She is in a high state of anxiety and is finding it hard to adjust to a normal life. Yet underneath there is a gentle lovely personality which will come to the forefront with love, attention and training. At the moment she is getting used to her name.
If you would like to help with Dolly's vet's fees we would be grateful. She is going to be a long time getting over her previous life, and the physical and physiological scars she has been left with. £5 a month will help in every way! if you would like to become one of Dolly's sponsors, please contact our sponsorship volunteer Danielle Wilkes <email@example.com>. Many thanks.
