RSPCA Wirral and Cheser branch are appealing for a very special home for a West Highland White Terrier, or ‘Westie’ as they’re known, found wandering around on the Wirral last month (Thursday, June 11).
The six-year-old female dog called ‘Petra’ by staff, was emaciated and suffering a severe skin condition and eye infection when she was spotted on Rigby Drive, Greasby, Wirral.
A concerned member of the public brought her to the animal centre on Cross Lane, Wallasey. Despite an appeal for information no one came forward.
Animal care manager Beth Pearson said: "The poor girl was in a terrible state when she came in, so much that she’s been at the vets ever since, we have managed to turn her around, but sadly, she’ll always need veterinary care."
Petra’s diabetic and will need two injections a day and special food for the rest of her life, she needs eye drops twice a day too.
Beth added: "It’s a big ask and will take a very special person to take her on but she’s so adorable.
We really hope someone will recognise her for the wonderful companion
