Thurrock Gazette: New home wanted for abandoned Greyhound hit by a car New home wanted for abandoned Greyhound hit by a car

A NEW home is being sought for a greyhound found abandoned and with nasty leg injuries after being runover in Chafford Hundred.

The RSPCA were called to Howard Road, near Sainsbury’s, on Monday, May 5, where they came across Bailey, four, who had a dislocated leg.

He was lying down, unable to walk, panting heavily and there was blood all up his back legs.

RSPCA animal collection officer Anna Glozier said: “He was clearly suffering when I arrived, the poor little thing - it was heartbreaking.

“I suspect he had been run over the night before and just been left there all night on his own without any treatment or care. He was so friendly despite the obvious pain he was in but when I tried to pick him up he just yelped in agony.

“I took him straight to a vet who confirmed his hind leg was badly dislocated and needed urgent surgery to be popped back into place.

“We urge anyone who knows anything at all to let us know about how poor Bailey came to be dumped in this state to call us on 0300 123 8018.”

Bailey has made a good recovery since surgery and will soon be ready for a new home.

Teri Langton, Clinic Manager for the RSPCA Essex, Havering & Harold Hill Branch which is caring for him, said: “Bailey is a really sweet and gentle boy who has captured everyone's heart and we would love to be able to find him a happy new home where he will be loved and cared for as he deserves.

“We would recommend him to be homed with children eight years and over, and with other dogs but probably not with cats.

“If people are interested in rehoming Bailey please call us on 01708 381822.”

It upsets me that there are people in this world that would leave an animal to suffer because they lacked the courage to do the right thing and help the creature that they had wounded.
