Abandoned Elderly Dog Gets Matted Fur Makeover And Makes An Odd-Defying Recovery

by Kristin Avery
Kristin shares a Chicago home with a dog, a rabbit, two cats, a husband, and an 11-year-old daughter.

Peggy was dumped over the back fence of a veterinary practice in a cardboard box with ‘dog inside’ scrawled on the front. The vets at the practice in Sheffield, South Yorks were shocked by her poor condition and say she may be the worst case of neglect they have ever seen.

The elderly and emaciated poodle-type dog was so matted that she was unable to blink. She had horrible eye ulcers that had caused her to go blind, a mouthful of rotten teeth, and damp feet from standing in her own excrement.

Her eyes were so badly damaged that they had to be removed along with most of her teeth. Peggy is somewhere between 8-14 years of age though it is difficult to be certain because of her poor condition.

In spite of everything she has been through, Peggy is inquisitive and loving. She enjoys exploring her foster mom’s yard and gets along well with her three other dogs. This special girl is a model of resiliency, bravery and strength. Dogs are so amazing in their ability to live in the moment and forgive the past.

Peggy’s foster mom reports that she just had her stitches removed and is almost ready for adoption. Precious Peggy has been through so much and certainly deserves her fairytale ending and a home of her own.
