CAN YOU OPEN YOUR HOME AND HEART TO OUR SPECIAL GIRL?
Skippy is one of the five dogs Hall Green offered to take in and help from the Lancashire Branch of the Greyhound Trust as they weren’t able to home dogs during the Covid pandemic over the past 12 months. She has been waiting for the past year for her special home
Poor Skippy didn’t have the best start to her retirement when the plate in her leg got infected.
After two operations and a referral to Super Vet, Noel Fitzpatrick, there was not alternative other than amputation.
She was adopted to aid her recovery but she didn’t like having the other dogs around her during her recovery and went back into Lancashire GT’s kennels.
She’s not been with us long but so far we’ve found her to be a happy girl despite missing her leg.
She doesn’t walk in a straight line for obvious reasons but fine walking out ahead of you, a bit like a diagonal crab.
We’ve been told she experiences phantom limb pain, bless her, but this is controlled with medication and she is very comfortable on her meds and we’ve not seen any sign of this while she’s been in our care.
Skippy will need to be an only dog and to an adult only household, so she doesn’t get bumped about. She walks around our paddocks happily enough but would only want at household where she only goes on short walks.
Tripod dogs can and do live fulfilling lives in the right homes so if you think you have what it takes to give Skippy the home that she deserves, then please call us on 0121 426 4810 or contact us to come and meet this special hound.
