A special appeal for Lucy


Sometimes, Staffie and Stray Rescue offer to help some dogs overseas as we feel that they have an increased chance of finding a forever home. Lucy was a special case who deserved to have a chance to be happy in a forever home.

Lucy was found at three months old, abandoned at a local vet’s. Poor Lucy grew up in a family home, however she was tragically hit by a car at such as young age. The home she left in abandoned her as they didn’t wish to pay the costs for the vet care. She now walks with a wheelchair.

She is now in one of Staffie and Stray Rescue’s loving foster homes, where we are assessing her needs. She is in desperate need of a loving forever home. Due to the extent of medical care that Lucy requires, SSR are committed to supporting any home willing to help Lucy, by covering the costs of her physiotherapy and hydrotherapy, which are necessary treatments required.

Due to her injury, Lucy is incontinent. We are looking for a sensitive and loving home who is prepared to potentially adapt their home with ramps to make it easy for Lucy to get around, costs also covered by the rescue. This will be a challenge for Lucy’s new, home but also very rewarding!

Since her arrival, Staffie and Stray Rescue are hugely grateful to Winston’s Wheels, an organisation who fundraise for dogs in need of wheelchairs. Lucy now has a sparkling new wheelchair which fits her better since she has outgrown her original one from Italy.

To follow Lucy’s story and to find out how you can help her going forward, please take a look at our website and social media platforms.
