6/7/2011 A happy ending for Grace – she’s been adopted by her foster family
This lovely older lady with the gorgeous big ears is Grace. She was originally rescued in Ireland, but is now in the care of Evesham Greyhound & Lurcher Rescue in the West Midlands.
The Irish rescue who saved Grace said: Grace is probably one of the saddest cases we have come across. We received a call from an elderly man after Christmas about a dog that had strayed into his shed. He didn’t know what to do, but could see there was something seriously wrong with her and asked us for help. The picture of Grace tells the story more adequately than a thousand words, she had crawled in there to die. She had a massive non malignant growth which had burst and was slowly killing her.
This is where Grace was found
Luckily, Grace was rescued and after many hours of surgery and care she is well on the road to recovery. As you can see from the recent photos she is doing well and has a healthy looking coat.
EGLR are not sure of Grace’s exact age, but she is estimated at approx 7 years old. She seems very quiet and placid and she walks well on the lead. She’s fine with other dogs and appears to be cat friendly, but hasn’t been properly assessed yet.
