ZENA – (named for racing as) Purple Pixie
Zena was raced at Great Yarmouth and came into the care of AFG 03.06.2001. What a state this poor girl was in.
We had been alerted to her by neighbours of the 1 bedroom upstairs council flat she was being kept in. Reports of her screaming and howling when left alone there (for sometimes up to 14 hours) whilst the then so called carer, went out clubbing etc. There were many disturbing reports of her screaming and howling upon the owners return (possibly being beaten for soiling the flat).
An AFG rep visited the property on 2 occasions and knew the poor greyhound was inside. Needless to say, there was no sign of anyone in the property. A note was left asking about the dogs welfare and as a result we were contacted by the boyfriend who, luckily, arranged for Zena to be signed over to AFG.
