Our very special lady Hope came to us in heart-breaking circumstances. She had been found tied up in a field by travellers with several malignant tumours and a mouthful of infected and rotten teeth. When we saw the photos of her at the pound, we didn’t think she would even survive the journey over to us – she looked as though she had given up. She had emergency and extensive surgery when she arrived and this has given her three wonderful years with her doting forever-foster mum, though sadly recently we were told the cancer had returned and she is now on palliative care. Despite this, you would not know that she is poorly and we are hoping she still has several months left before we have to let her go.
