*UPDATE ON AGNES*
Agnes has now had her eye removed and she is doing really well in her foster home. We would like to thank everyone who donated towards her treatment for their incredibly kind donations. She is now looking for her new forever home. Please check the rehoming page for more information.
*Please note, below is Agnes’ original post*
Just a week into the new year and we had our first emergency call from the dog warden about a dog in desperate need of help. A small white dog had been spotted hiding under a car for a few days in North London.
The warden eventually managed to pull the dog out from under the car to discover that her right eye had been impaled and appeared to be hanging out of the socket. The vet believes the injury was caused by an object like a railing as it appears she had been wandering on her own for several days, and she was also emaciated, extremely scared, dirty and unchipped.
Agnes (what we have decided to call her) was then rushed to a local vets, who immediately put her on a drip and antibiotics. Sadly, the vet felt he couldn’t save her right eye and she’s been booked in to have it removed. We believe Agnes is a Westie Cross and approximately 3 years old.
Despite all that she’s been through, the vet staff love Agnes and say she’s a very sweet and friendly little dog (although she can be a little nervous with quick movements). For that reason, she would prefer to be the only dog in the home, as we have not been able to test her with other dogs as yet and she can live with children over the age of 12 years (but sorry, no cats). Agnes will hopefully be looking for her new forever home later in the week, once she has recovered, so if you feel Agnes is the one for you please get in touch – firstname.lastname@example.org
Agnes’ medical care has been extremely costly, so if you feel you would like to contribute towards her care, please donate here – https://alldogsmatter.co.uk/get-involved/donate/donate-now/ – and kindly reference Agnes as part of your donation.
All dogs matter. Thanks so much for supporting Agnes.
