LADY -(named for racing as) SEASIDE SUNRISE

Lady came into the care of AFG on July 17th 2013. She had been transported in an inadequate vehicle on one of the hottest days of the year. When signed over by a third party, Lady was traumatized and with an alarmingly high temperature. Her coat and skin were filthy and she was crawling with fleas. Her entire rear end was covered in horrendous scars and open infected sores. She was immediately rushed to AFG’s vet where she was instantly admitted to receive urgent veterinary treatment.

After four days of extensive veterinary care, Lady went to her foster home. Here she continued with medication including antibiotics and skin balm. Lady seemed relieved to be in a clean comfortable environment.

After weeks of tender care, Lady’s physical and mental state improved. The foster carers did a great job with Lady but sadly were unable to foster her long term, so she then went on to another AFG foster home, with the company of another greyhound. This new arrangement helped Lady even more as she was so very nervous, but with the companionship of the other hound, she soon blossomed.
Lady’s previous ‘owner’ Anne Marie Reed, from Hartlepool, has never been able to explain why Lady was in such a terrible condition of neglect, neither has she ever provided any veterinary history, we therefore believe that Lady had never received any treatment from a licensed vet.

All the information of Lady’s neglect with the back up of full support from AFG’s vet were given to the RSPCA who chose not to take any action.

All Lady needed was proper care which she received as soon as she came into our care, so we feel that her condition was a case of severe neglect.

Lady can still be very wary of certain things and prefers a life without much change, so unless the type of home she has in her foster home comes along, she is likely to stay there where she is happy and settled, in a permanent foster home with AFG covering the cost of her care.
