"Hoax" suspicious thread asking for money was true


Recommended Posts

Just an update, Fabcakes posted a thread about a puppy in Romania wanting donations to help pay for treatment. The link was removed as it asked for money to be sent to an unknown party.


Just an update.. It was not a hoax.

You may recognise the picture if you saw this poor baby..

(Warning, image may be disturbing)






Her name is now Skinny, and she has come to a foster home in the UK under the care of Lurcher SOS :)

She is only 5 months old and weighs a tiddly 7.5kg but is in the best place possible.

Here are some pictures of her now in the UK:










Just thought I'd post, in case anyone wanted to know what happened. A wonderful success story for this little baby.

I think it was a dog that tore her up in Romania.

She is such a pretty little thing, and the Vets in Romania have done such a good job stitching her up.



Thats the mark she has to show for her troubles now :)


It is such a shame that she could not stay in her own country, all that extra stress after such a large operation.


I do sometimes wonder the reasoning behind importing mistreated dogs when the same happens here and for the same cost more lives could be saved.

If the opinion is right, they are deprived of the opportunity of exchanging error for truth.If wrong, they lose, what is almost as great a benefit, the clearer perception and livelier impression of truth, produced by its collision with error JS Mill

Evei - Yes, my mum feels a similar way. She wonders why people are so worried about rehoming 'foreign' dogs when we have enough in the UK needing homes.


Apparently though, Skinny-Minnie is doing really well. She hasn't had any accidents in the home, and is enjoying her new lurcher friend.
