She lost her eye, but found true love. It is with great pleasure that we could send this beautiful girl home with her new family on 3 January 2022.
Her journey with Cape of Good Hope SPCA began on 3 December 2021 when Inspector Rudolph Philander was tasked with following up on a dog that had been brought to Fisantekraal Animal Welfare because she had an injured left eye. The owner was told that the dog would be attended to free of charge but she would also have to be sterilised, which the owner refused.
Inspector Philander arrived at the owner’s address and found he was not there, but that his dog was roaming around in the street and between the houses. Her eye was in a very bad state and it was swollen to the point where the side of her head was also swollen. “I immediately left the owner a 24-hour contact notice and loaded the dog, taking her in to Cape of Good Hope SPCA as a stray so that she could be seen by a veterinarian,” said Inspector Philander.
Dr. Revona did an examination on her eye and concluded that the dog’s eye had to be removed immediately. The dog recovered very well from the surgery and she was sterilised a week later after recovery.
The owner did not make contact with the CoGH SPCA and the dog subsequently became property of the CoGH SPCA. A very loving girl, she successfully passed all assessments to be a candidate for adoption, and found her a home exactly a month after her ordeal began.
