YOU HAVE HELPED BIGGSD HELP LITTLE DAISY - HER STORY IS HERE.
Daisy was living in Egypt when under a year old, she fell, jumped or was pushed over a balcony, 5 floors up. Unbelievably, she survived but sustained a fractured leg and damaged hip. Her injuries were treated and a rescue took her in - but rescues in Egypt fall far short of rescues in the UK and Daisy was kept in a very small pen/cell for nearly a year. Her plight came to the attention of a lady based in France, who then undertook to get young Daisy out of Egypt. It was a long and difficult job, getting the necessary paperwork raised and completed and finally rescue space was found with Garbo's German Shepherd Rescue - a rescue many members know of.
Also to add to Daisy's problems, was a swelling under her eye when she arrived in France. A visit to the vet resulted in an ultrasound being carried out, which showed a mass in the cheek. Oh no, everyone thought, not a tumour! The decision was made to remove the mass and on further investigation, a lump was found in the roof of Daisy's mouth. It turned out that a stick had pierced her palate, breaking off in the process and had wedged in her cheek. Goodness knows how long it had been there. So Daisy had to undergo further surgery to remove the piece of broken stick.
BIGGSD paid a large sum to help towards Daisy's costs.
After a long and hazardous journey, Daisy finally arived in the UK two weeks ago and was taken straight to Garbo's kennels, arriving at midnight. The kennel ladies waited up for her. What a great team they are!
I went to see her at the kennels and what a little beauty Daisy is. And when I say little, she is S M A L L. Only weighs 20 kilos but small in build. And oh, so loving. All what she has gone through has not fazed her at all. She loves people and wanted lots of cuddles. Garbo had taken her to the vet to have the stitches removed and now Daisy is well on the way to recovery.
Here are some photos.
It will not be long before Daisy finds her own loving home and can then really enjoy life - and someone will have a super loyal friend too.
ONCE AGAIN, THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR SUPPORTING BIGGSD. WE WILL CONTINUE TO HELP MORE "DAISY's" AND HOPE YOU WILL CONTINUE TO SUPPORT BIGGSD.
