Cold, frightened and tied to a farm gate
Nora, a ten-year-old Terrier cross was found in an extremely vulnerable condition. She had been tied up and abandoned, left to suffer in the cold overnight. Worse still, Nora was almost completely blind, meaning she wouldn’t have been able to take in her surroundings or see approaching dangers.
A full health check by our veterinary team revealed the full extent of Nora’s health issues. Her skin was sore and infected, she had overgrown nails, matted fur, dental disease and ear trouble. She also had very dry eyes, which must have been causing her a lot of pain.
Woodgreen Dog Carer Clarissa described poor Nora as being in a state of ‘emotional shut down’; where a dog’s needs have been neglected for so long that they won’t eat, walk, bark or play.
