Dog left looking like a fur RUG by cruel owners is rescued in Germany

Dog that was left looking like a fur RUG after years of neglect at the hands of its cruel owners is rescued and nursed back to health in Germany

  •  Dog found in town of Voelklingen in Western Germany by animal welfare charity
  •  Kira the dog was discovered with open wounds, fleas and several tumours
  •  Miracle recovery means the dog can now start to look for a new loving home

This mass of matted fur is actually a living dog left with open wounds, an injured leg, festering ears as well as several tumours and a slipped disc.

She was found in the town of Voelklingen which is in the German province of Saarland in Western Germany.  Incredibly she did not end up like this after being abandoned on the streets, but she was actually left in the care of a family who paid no attention to her appalling condition.

The dog’s condition was so awful, animal activists doubted that vets could do anything for her. But now, just a month later, she is not only on the road to recovery, but looks nothing like she did when she was first wheeled into the vet surgery.

Dog or rug? This mass of matted fur is actually a living dog left with open wounds, a damaged leg, festering ears as well as several tumours and a slipped disc

When she was rescued she was taken to the Salu vet surgery in Saarbruecken where they found that she was infested with fleas.

The miracle recovery means that Kira, estimated to be around 12 years old, can soon look for a new home after what was probably years of neglect.

Staff at the local Animal Welfare charity said they were now proud to present Kira as a well-groomed, cheerful dog looking for a new home.

They said that her tumours had been removed, and although her foot remains bandaged, it was much better, and in fact the injury to her foot had probably been there for a decade. They said, therefore, that she had probably got used to it.

They said they need an owner with a lot of love, patience and experience to look after the dog who can no longer manage long walks and who will need regular treatment on her still injured foot.

Sarah Kindel from the animal protection association said because of her abuse it would not be easy for Kira to integrate with a new family. They are looking for people who are ‘willing to get to know Kira slowly and who would also have had several conversations with us regarding their behaviour.’
