Suzie's happy ending

Suzie the dog

When Suzie arrived in our care she was sadly in a horrendous condition.

The poor girl weighed only 4.3kgs, which was roughly half the weight she should have been.

Following our investigation, her previous owner was taken to court and banned from owning animals for life.

Scottish SPCA Inspector Karen Cooper said, "Suzie arrived in our care in an extremely poor condition and required immediate veterinary treatment.

"As well as being really thin, Suzie was also covered in painful sores around her legs and had a large wound on the back of her neck.

"It was clear she'd been neglected and denied the veterinary care she had needed for a prolonged period of time.

"Thankfully we were able to identify her owner and we were pleased a life ban was imposed.

"Suzie is now in a good home where she is receiving the love and care she deserves."
