Fiona appeared on the street and she was there for 3 months. Someone was giving her food but that was it. No-one took the initiative to take her to the vet and check if she had a chip.
Some photos were posted on facebook. We decided to help. We asked for her to be rescued. She was taken from the street and driven to the vet, and she actually had a chip. We contacted her owner and he said that she had escaped from home 3 months before but if we wanted to keep her, it was fine… He signed the necessary documents and she became ours.
Poor dog… first long time on the street and then unwelcome back home. She did not deserve any of this. She was brought to us – and what a lovely dog. She is very gentle, very sweet, very placid. She walks well on the leash, she is lovely with people and she is friendly with other dogs. Such a nice girl.
