ANIMAL rescuers are seeking a special home for the North-east’s own “bionic dog”.
Millie the greyhound was nursed back to health after thousands of pounds was raised for her care. The dog is now ready for a fresh start with a new owner.
Volunteers at the charity Give a Greyhound a Home (Gagah) are certain that the perfect home is out there. Nine-month-old Millie was taken in by the Methlick group earlier this year and found herself at the centre of a £4,000 fundraising appeal.
The injured pup needed 22 metal pins inserted in her leg to straighten deformed bones, caused in a fight with another dog. The pup has been up for adoption for two months now, however, the charity had wanted to ensure there were no further complications before handing her over to a new owner.
The charity has also pledged to pay for any work that Millie needs done on her leg in the future.
Liz Jones, who has been caring for Millie since the surgery, said: “She’s a really nice-natured dog and I’ve been wavering on whether or not to keep her.”
