On Tuesday 9th July Poor Millie was abandoned near to the rescue, left tied to a poo bin alone in the rain. We were heartbroken when we discovered her and upon closer inspection it became clear that she was in a bit of a mess. She was crawling with fleas, had long overgrown nails, broken teeth and was suffering with a nasty cough. After a full examination by our vet it was sadly revealed that Millie has mammary tumours with an x-ray revealing several possible masses in her chest. We will be repeating these x-rays in 2 weeks to confirm if this is definitely the case. At the moment Millie is receiving medication to help keep her comfortable and at this stage we do not know how long she will have. We are desperate to find Millie a long term foster home where she can live out the rest of her days being showered with love and attention as she should have always been.
Millie has a wonderful temperament despite everything she has been through, she is such a sweet, friendly girl and really is no trouble at all. Unfortunately she does not appear to like other dogs and so we are looking for a home where she will be the only pet. Due to her age we also feel she would be best suited to a quiet home free from young children with someone around for most of the day.
We will continue to support Millie whilst she is in a foster home and therefore it is important that she is local to the rescue so that she can meet regular appointments with our vet.
If you can help this special girl please do not hesitate to get in touch.
