One such person is Linda Richardson who has turned her house into a sanctuary for cats and dogs. I am truly amazed at how much Linda has achieved. I often wonder if she has more than 24 hours in her day, as opposed to the rest of us!
But I want to tell you about a very special project undertaken by Linda over the past three months.
This is Sophie's story:
Sophie, as she is now called was discovered in Deliktas at the beginning of December last year with a large wound on her right side, measuring 26 cm by 10 cm. As you can see from the photograph it was in a extreme state of necrosis and it was considered that she should be put to sleep unless someone was able to look after her and perform the wound management required for such a serious wound.
Linda Richardson offered to take Sophie and give her the treatment and care that she needed if she was to survive. It was not an easy task,slowly removing the necrotic tissue, applying the medication required and dressing the wound daily. However after a few weeks the wound was responding to the treatment and new tissue was growing. Now three months later, Sophie is well on her way to making a good recovery. Throughout her treatment Sophie has been an excellent patient. She is simply delightful. She is friendly and gets on well with other dogs, and is used to the cats around the home but she has a confident,slightly dominant nature. This is in no way a problem. She is very good in the house, very clean and doesnt chew things and walks fine on a lead.
In Lindas words she is a perfectly beautiful girl, A delight to have. Sophie is about four years old, she has been neutered and had all her injections and due her blood test at the end of March, so she will soon be ready to move to her For Ever Home.. should one be found suitable for her. Sophie is a very special dog and has been through an awful lot. We want to find a very special home for her, one where she will live out the rest of her live with all the love and care she so richly deserves.
