MISTY – (named for racing as) PLAIN BLOSSOM
Deemed no good for racing’ after a trial in Ireland. A young girl concerned for her future welfare and safety, brought her to the U.K.
MISTY, came into the care of AFG in April 2012. Her front leg had been burned and was badly scarred and infected and very painful for her.
The information we received was that after injuring her tendon after a trial in Ireland her leg was deliberately burnt as to rush a supply of blood to her leg believing this would repair the tendon. This is an illegal practice which has been banned in the U.K for years and would cause an animal immense pain and unecessary suffering.
This information has been passed to welfare authorities in Ireland who we hope will be following Misty’s case up and hopefully the other greyhounds in Mr Woodcocks care will be examined. We are awaiting the results of these investigations.
Misty went straight into her forever home with one of our long term supporters who sadly lost her other rescued greyhound Sophie, at aged only 9 years, unexpectedly a few months earlier. Misty was in season when she came to us but still managed to settle very quickly and once over the season got to mix and play with all the local dogs and meet lots of friendly people. Misty is now enjoying life to the full with her devoted carer and we hope they will enjoy a lot of happy years together.
