Appeal for Ethel

You might recognise Ethel! She arrived with us a few weeks ago with her sister Lucy from a puppy farm. They were ex-breeding dogs – now underweight and malnourished, their skin sore from mange.

We started treatment for the skin immediately and they started to feel and smell better within a few weeks! Ethel has now started to put on weight and her hair is growing back in places! Thank you to Butternut Box for keeping her well fed, good food makes such a difference!

Sadly we discovered that Ethel had some problems with her breathing. We noticed her little tongue was hanging out a lot and she struggled to keep food down. Thanks to a slow feeder at dinner times, this is no longer a problem. However, she now requires an operation- a soft palate resection and nostril enlargement which should help her breathe much more easily.

Ethel has now had her operation and it was a complete success! Ethel is much more comfortable and has already been running around much more like a normal pup! A new family came to meet her and they could not resist her Pug charms! She has a fur-brother and sister (a Pug and a Puggle!) now and they all adore snuggling up together and have been ‘inseperable’ according to her new owners.

Thank you all so much for your support with Ethel! 

We hope this appeal will help us raise awareness of poor Ethel’s condition (one often suffered by Pugs and French Bulldogs in particular) and also some donations to contribute towards the cost of the operation.
