1. This is Sandy. Pat Clark of Mutts in Distress saw his picture and started an appeal to get him brought to the UK.
He’s believed to have had a nutritional problem which meant his front legs were extremely bowed.
2. Hundreds of pounds were raised, and that meant he could have an operation.
Chaim Pilosof, a partner and surgeon at Companion Care vets at the Beehive Centre in Cambridge, did the operation on his day off. He’s also had an MRI scan at a reduced price and seen an eye specialist, while the plates needed to straighten his legs were donated for free.
3. Sandy’s already doing better.
4. Pat told the Cambridge News:
I am speechless and overwhelmed by people’s kindness and generosity shown to an abandoned dog, who a month ago had no hope of ever walking properly or hope of the gift of sight. No one had heard his name or knew of his existence.
