A dog has been rescued after it was caught on CCTV wandering onto a garage forecourt – starving and injured looking for help
In the footage Saluki-type dog Susie can be seen with a broken leg and black football socks tied tightly around her other three legs.
The socks had been placed on her to cover sores that they had cut into them.
A member of the public called the RSPCA after she was seen at the garage in Huddersfield, West Yorks., on September 20.
RSPCA inspectors believe her leg had been broken for a week before she was found and the socks had been on longer judging by her wounds.
Inspector Rebecca Goulding said: “The poor girl is suffering from both sarcoptic mange and ringworm and was also emaciated – she was in a terribly sad state.
“She had to be sedated to get the socks off her – she really is the sweetest thing and hasn’t misbehaved once when she has been getting treatment.”
“She was transferred to the RSPCA’s Greater Manchester Animal Hospital in Salford where everyone fell in love with her.
Inspector Goulding told how Susie had now been moved to an RSPCA branch where she has started to put on some weight.
She said: “Her skin conditions – which are contagious – means she is having to be kept in isolation and is receiving daily treatment.
“It looks as though her broken leg will need to be amputated as it had started to heal in the wrong position.
“She is far from out of the woods yet but she is receiving the very best care and veterinary treatment.”
Susie was not microchipped so at the moment there is no way of tracing her owner.
Anyone who recognises Susie, knows who her owner is, or has any specific information that might help the investigation is asked to call the RSPCA appeal line on 0300 123 8018.
