Millie is making a good recovery but will never be like other greyounds says Liz Jones.
Millie is making a good recovery but will never be like other greyounds says Liz Jones.

An injured greyhound which has been in the care of a North-east charity, has undergone extensive surgery.

Seven months-old Millie suffered the injury after she was attacked by another racing dog at the kennels run by the breeder who owned her originally.

She sustained a broken foot in the attack and has since been in the care of Maud-based charity Give a Greyhound a Home since being treated by vets.

She had to have a total of 22 metal pins inserted into her foot following the attack.

The metal rods will help strengthen her foot, but there are still concerns that she may be left with permanent damage.

Memsie resident Liz Jones has been looking after Millie until she can find a permanent home and Liz has also been helping fundraise to cover the veterinary costs in the region of £3,500.

Liz confirmed this week that donations to the cause currently stood around £2,000, with money still coming in.

She also said that various fundraising events were being held, including a silent auction, and it was more than likely that the final vet bill would be covered.

She added that Millie’s recovery was coming along well and the vets were very hopeful.
