At 6:10PM on Thursday 13th December 2007, I was called to Mold Police Station because they were worried about a dog that had been handed in. They were worried that it was so thin that it would not survive the night in the cold. They were right!
This little dog, so small and thing it was thought to be a puppy, is actually a young adult dog. She is skeletal andn I took her immediately to the vets where she was given a health check, some injections, was wormed and flea treated and treated for mites.
I then took her home and she is now resting in a basket, wrapped in blankets in front of the fire in our kitchen. She is lovely and loving, but she is so weak she can hardly stand up.
This is supposed to be the season of good will... Well, not for this poor little dog it isn't. She is very hand-shy, so has most probably been hit many times. She is terrified of loud noises. So far, this little dog has not had a good life.
CARPRICORN ANIMAL RESCUE
Rosie has gained 60% of her body weight and has gone to a new, loving home. She is now on three feeds per day and is playing and trying to rule the household. She has been adopted by two wonderful people who came to visit the sanctuary to visit Rosie every day, brought her treats and took her for short walks until she was fit enough to go home with them.
We wish her a long and happy life.
