Abandoned Dog With Wonky Legs Saved By Generous Animal Lovers

Well done, Mutts In Distress.

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.

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.

Sandy's already doing better.

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.
