Charity Finding Furever Homes (FFH) is appealing for a temporary foster home in the SK postcode for a dog who has had her leg rebuilt.
The home is needed for the next 12 weeks maximum, for a 2 year old saluki girl who is post surgery.
Little Flo has had a bone graft taking bone from her shoulder to fix her broken hock, and a skin graft, so she needs total bed rest with careful, considered, controlled exercise until the wound and bone fuse and are stable.
She will be best in a quiet, calm environment, no kids, no cats, and no energetic dogs who will wind her up. Homes need to be close to Stockport, Cheadle, Wilmslow, south Manchester in order to attend her follow up appointments with the very clever vet who rebuilt her after someone dumped her with a badly broken leg, fleas, worms and little hope.
FFH trustee, Andrea Newton said: “Little Flo has beaten the odds and ended up having very expensive and clever surgery to fix her badly busted leg, and now we need to find somewhere for Flo to go from next week where she can get lots of love and attention and continue to heal.
“She may be well enough and stable enough to move on sooner but worst case scenario she needs 12 weeks bed rest.”
FFH will cover all the fosterers costs, both in terms of providing a super big crate, bed, food, harness & lead, food and of course all vet bills and any consumables.
Andrea added; ” I know we are asking for the virtually impossible but I am a big believer in never say never – Flo was lucky enough to be found by 2 very caring FFH volunteers, the vet was smart enough to risk the clever stuff to save her leg, so we need to make sure her luck continues with the chance of a marvellous home to recuperate in with lots of support from us.”
If you have dogs yourself they need to be quiet, calm and gentle and respect her space, you need a decent sized garden for gentle lead exercise and enough space to accommodate a decent sized crate for this little sweetheart to rest and recover.
