Pixie was only 5 weeks old when she was found by a member of the public in a park last November. The tiny pup had an eye injury and damage to her belly.
The Wood Green veterinary team got to work quickly in order to save her eye, and after intensive treatment, she fully recovered.
A few months on, Pixie has blossomed into a playful terrier and has been rehomed by an adoring family. Her new owner, Steve, said, “Pixie is a very happy, cheeky, bubbly, and playful puppy who is adored by all of us, none more so than our eldest child, Dylan, who's 4 years old.
“Health-wise, Pixie is doing fantastically well. Her eye has healed amazingly, and her hernias have zero impact on her activities.
“Pixie loves nothing more than a nice long walk in the park, and she’ll happily play with the other dogs and fetch toys, which there are plenty of! In true terrier style, she loves to dig, so that can be quite fun when it comes to hiding treats in the garden with the children.”
