A stray dog found with a ‘horrific injury’ from a sword is finally ready to find a new home.Rescuers found Sabby, five, with a wound so deep her bones were visible.
She needed immediate medical attention after someone with a ‘hatred of stray dogs ’ is believed to have attacked her.Crossbreed Sabby was found in a town in Romania, but was brought to the UK to stay with Norfolk-based charity Safe Rescue for Dogs.
Two years after her injury, she is at last ready to find a ‘patient and understanding’ family.
A post on the charity’s Facebook page read: ‘Sabby was found in a town in Romania that is renowned for the poor treatment of street animals.
‘She had an horrific injury around her hips and back where some psycho had tried to slice her in half with a sword.
‘The injury was open and down to the bone and her recovery took many months.
‘The pain she must have endured prior to being rescued and given pain relief cannot even be imagined.
‘The fact that she could emerge from this ordeal with any trust at all in humans is nothing short of miraculous.’
Use a Food Dispensing Toy for Fast Eaters. If your dog eats too fast use a food dispensing toy (we love the Kong Wobbler & Bob a Lot), or place a few tennis balls in their bowl to slow their eating. Not only does this keep them from eating too quick, it gives them a nice mental workout.
Although Sabby is still weary of men, the charity said she mixes well with other dogs and loves going out on walks.
The charity added: ‘She is very weary of men and may always be and who on earth could blame her.
‘Sabby is now enjoying her walks and starting to enjoy the world around her.
‘She will always bear the physical and mental scars of the cowardly act that made her hit the headlines but she is still a sweet and loving little girl who can have a bright and happy future.’
