In January 2008 Mino found Dottie at the side of a busy main road, she was petrified. She was so young, only around three to four months old, she only weighed 2.4 kilos. It became obvious that she had a broken leg. So I’m guessing that’s why she was dumped. We had her leg mended, and it’s been perfectly fine since. A delightful little girl. Such a sweetheart ❤️
Dottie started to have trouble with her eyes, So we took her to an oculist. She had Traumatic Lens Displacement, which means the lens behind the eyeball has displaced itself and moved in the front of her eye. A very painful complaint. She had the operation, her vision was impaired, but she was no longer in pain.
She was going to have the eye removed, the operation had started when her heart started to fail, so the vets quickly had to bring her round. Unfortunately, as time passed the other eye deteriorated. Dottie is now completely blind. But she is happy, she plods around her familiar house and garden.
She is 13 years old now, such a delightful little girl. A sweetheart. Our baby 💕🐶🐾
