A WOMAN is trying to raise the money to help a dog that was badly abused.
Deborah Searle, of Selwyn Road, Stamford, has been fostering dogs for the Rottweiler Welfare Association for about three years and has recently taken on Bruno, a male rottweiler.
Deborah was told that Bruno had been thrown out of a first floor window, which caused injuries to his pelvis, spine and neck.
Because the injuries were not dealt with immediately, he needs hydrotherapy treatment twice a week for several months to help improve his joints. He will start hydrotherapy sessions today.
Deborah, who is married to Julian, has taken Bruno to her heart and said: “Everyone who meets him falls in love with him because he is such a lovely dog.
“He is going to need veterinary treatment over the course of about two years, which could run into thousands of pounds so I am hoping to raise as much money as I can.
“Once he has had some treatment, we will be able to start looking for a forever home for him. I think it is going to be a big responsibility for someone to take him on but he is an adorable dog.
“Any financial help would be absolutely fantastic or if anyone can help me to organise fundraising events, I would be very grateful to hear from them.”
As well as Bruno, Deborah is also caring for Maisie and her two pups. Maisie was badly malnourished, which resulted in her losing three of her puppies. She also has her own dog called Roxy.
Deborah, 39, is looking for donations of fabric as she has been making doorstops to sell. Any donations can be brought into Cinders Bridal and Prom Wear in Scotgate, Stamford, where Deborah is a partner or anyone who wants to help her can call 07917355009.
