Yesterday 2nd Feb 2010, I was on my way to work when I passed a man dragging this poor beast with a piece of leather around her neck. Needless to say I stopped and managed to get the dog away from him. She is a soft natured creature who has endured 6 /7 years of hell and really needs a loving home.
I took her to the Pinelands Veterinary clinic as the Vet there is the deputy head of the Animal Anti-cruelty league. He said that she would probably need to be euthanize.
I had thought as much and was sad at the idea but understood that it may be the best thing for her. The kind vet said he would let me know what AACL decided. Anyway this morning I was driving along wondering what would have become of her when the vet called to say that they will try to rehabilitate her… YIPPEE
I am going to make a plan and visit over the weekend and take her some yummy food…now the thing is if she makes it and I am sending out positive energy that she does…she will need a loving home…
Please put feelers out and let me know if anyone is able to help!Sad Updates:
Hello to you all,I am sorry to be the bearer of bed news…Maggie has terrible hip-displasure. I thought this may be the case when I visited her last week. Unfortunately she battle to walk and is in great pain. Maggie was sent for X-Rays this Thursday which confirmed our fears. She was immediately put on tablets for the pain. I know about these (German Sheppard experience), they with long term use will cause kidney failure etc…not a good future for any beautiful being…So with the Advice of June Woodman, the head of the Animal Welfare Society, I made the decision to let her be laid to rest. It will take place this afternoon after dinner and Gotfrey and Alicia will be with her. I could not go as I am useless at saying goodbye and would be a nightmare for the staff at AWS to deal with – their job is hard enough as it is.Please will you circulate this email so that everyone who has been so kind and responded to her plea for help will be in the know.I wish you all a safe and restful weekend. It has been wonderful to meet so many animal lovers…I though I was the only animal nut.Take care,Bridgetp.s Please sign our Petition in memory of Maggie: http://www.reportacrime.co.za/OurPetition.aspx
