A little dog was so badly neglected when she was rescued by the RSPCA that when her matted fur was clipped it was discovered that she had lost her front paws through lack of circulation.

RSPCA inspector Tony Woodley was horrified when he received a complaint and found 14-year-old poodle shi-tzu cross breed Cheeky living with her former owner in Brighton UK.

But vets at Arthur Lodge in Horsham came to the rescue and after careful consideration helped create a harness on wheels for Cheeky so she can get around without putting any weight on her front legs.

Inspector Woodley said: “This poor dog was so matted that there was simply no blood supply getting through to her paws so they fell off – it was tragic. Together with rotten teeth, she was not in a good way.”

csodoofCheeky has now been given veterinary treatment and thanks to her new mode of transport – created by Horsham students – is able to get around and is now looking for a new home.

Inspector Woodley said: “We are looking for a home where Cheeky can live out the rest of her days with lots of love and be given the attention she has lacked so far in her life. We really hope someone will come forward and want Cheeky in their life.”

The RSPCA is looking for a home in the Horsham area for Cheeky so she can be able to go to Arthur Lodge vets whenever she needs any help or treatment.

Anyone interested in offering a new home to Cheeky can contact Arthur Lodge Vets on 01403 252964.

Cheeky’s former owner is being investigated by the RSPCA.

  1. She looks lovely, and I am glad he is no longer suffering, if she lived further up the country, I would happily take her in and help her live out her final years in comfort and peace.

    I do think the wheels on her “cart” are too small though, she could hardly move that cart on the short grass, larger, pneumatic wheels, with treads, would give her more traction and surely be easier for the wee lass to push around ? I’m thankful and grateful the Vets could help her, but vets are vets, not engineers ! get an engineer involved !

  2. I agree with you Windswept. I am so happy that Cheeky has wheels but the whole cart seems so cumbersome for her.

    Something a little lighter with bigger wheels would seem a better fit, especially since she is an older girl.

    She is adorable and hope she does find a loving home.
