Injured puppy ‘caught in snare’ is rehomed by Blue Cross
30 April 2012
Mongrel puppy Fortune was only a few months old when she was found in a terrible state by the side of the road.
One of her back legs was badly damaged and we think she’d been caught in a snare trap.
Luckily she was found and rescued by some passing horse riders.
Sadly Fortune’s leg was beyond repair – the bone had been shattered and all the skin removed – and she needed an operation to have it amputated.
Fortune recovered well from the surgery and was nursed back to health by staff at the Blue Cross Lewknor rehoming centre.
Blue Cross Animal welfare assistant Jess Hollis says: “Despite her ordeal Fortune is a very loving and trusting girl and has a great character.
“She’s having no trouble with movement and often runs rings around the dog friends she has met while being at the centre.
Jess adds: “Fortune is a very special pup and has been through a lot.”
Fortune now has a healthy future to look forward to after Blue Cross found her a new family.
