Could You Give This Dog A Home?

Rottweiler Willow

9:43am 26th November 2014

Could you give this dog a home? A local animal charity is appealing for someone to give a very special six year old Rottweiler somewhere to live.

Margaret Green Animal Rescue found Willow in enormous amounts of pain and had to help her have an operation to repair the cruciate ligament in the back of her knee.

Helen Chittock, manager at Margaret Green Animal Rescue's Lincoln Farm centre for rescued dogs said: "In addition to her surgery, Willow suffers from ataxia which is a neurological condition that causes her to be a little uncoordinated when she moves, resulting in a wobbly gait.

Her condition causes her few problems and we would love to find her a foster home whilst she recovers from her operation, or better still a permanent loving home.

Willow is a very friendly, gentle dog who only requires short walks.  She is house trained and happy to be left for short periods.  Willow is able to live with children aged 5+ and is also very sociable with other animals".

If you think that you might be able to offer Willow a home, please contact Margaret Green Animal Rescue. Call 01929 471340 or email lf@margaretgreenanimalrescue.org.uk.

Willow is recovering well but her operation cost the charity £800. Extra veterinary costs such as this put a huge strain on resources especially as the number of abandoned and stray animals continues to increase.

If you would like to make a donation to help Margaret Green Animal Rescue save the lives of even more rescue dogs, visit justgiving.com/willowappeal or text WLLW50 followed by the amount you wish to donate, to 70070.
