Saluki X. 25""
Sasha was handed into a Vets with a double break in her ulna and radius on her front leg. It was pinned, but the pins worked their way out so it was cast again. She subsequently had her eye knocked out by another dog. The leg has healed fine, but is twisting as she gets older. She is just around a year and a half old. She will be supported for life by the Rescue for any recurring problems with her hind leg.
Little rough coat cross Lurcher 24"
Poor little Meggie came into the Rescue as a 4/5 month old pup with clear signs that she had something like wire tightened around her back leg. She nearly lost her hind leg, but thanks to the support of one of SLR's Vets in Epping Meggie kept her leg. There is still an underlying problem with the circulation and recently she was bitten by an Adder, which resulted in her leg swelling yet again. Meggie will be supported for life by the Rescue for any recurring problems with her hind leg.
