- Passersby who discovered a puppy being thrown out inside a plastic bag scooped out and brought it to a vet.
- At the vet, they found out that the 8-week-old pup had a leg deformity that made it unable to walk.
- The pup’s foster mom and the Cotswolds Dogs & Cats Home are working together to get the pup the needed surgery and giving him lots of love and care.
When you see plastic being thrown from a van into a garbage bin, what would you do? Acting on instincts that there was something strange about the bag, passersby discovered that inside the plastic bag was a puppy!
They were so shocked at the way the pup was treated that they immediately brought it to a vet who informed the RSPCA’s Cotswolds Dogs & Cats Home for assistance.
In a press release, Haley Medlock, a staff member at the Cotswolds Dogs & Cats Home, believed that the pup who they now call Winnie, was abandoned because of her front leg deformity. The condition rendered her unable to walk. Winnie also has had seizures that the RSPCA is investigating.
In spite of her health issues, everyone has been gushing over her happy and playful attitude.
Winnie’s foster mom, Ebony Poole, said. “She is such a fun-loving girl. She loves her playtime and will curl up on my lap for a good nap afterwards.”
But due to her condition, Winnie needs to have surgery to amputate her leg and therapy and rehabilitation after to make her adjust to being an amputee.
Poole said, “She is my biggest concern at the moment and I’m hopeful that the public will help us care for Winnie and erase the neglect she has already suffered at the tender age of just eight weeks.”
Poole, Medlock and the RSPCA’s Cotswolds Dogs & Cats Home are working on Winnie’s health and condition for her to be ready for adoption.
We are sure that their love and care will help Winnie recover fully after her operation and help her find her forever home soon!
