A dehydrated puppy, who was found abandoned under a hedge and wrapped up in a towel, has now found a new safe home to spend the rest of his years in.
The three-month-old Chihuahua pup, named Tiny, was discovered by a member of the public late at night, shivering and cold, under a hedge in a park in North West London. The member of the public immediately brought Tiny into Mayhew for help.
Mayhew’s Animal Welfare Officer, AJ Ford, said: “Poor Tiny was wrapped up in a towel and looked terrified. We wish whoever had abandoned Tiny had called us first. At Mayhew we are dedicated to helping people in crisis situations. We do not judge and we are here to assist and advise on the best course of action for the animal, no matter what the problem is.”
He was seen by Mayhew’s experienced Vet Team straight away at the on-site Community Vet Clinic so he could receive the treatment that he needed.
Mayhew’s Vet, Dr Emily Richardson, said: “When Tiny first arrived he was dehydrated and very nervous. We monitored him throughout the night, but thankfully he had no health problems that were of concern.”
Tiny was given worm and flea treatment and he was later vaccinated and neutered. After receiving medical attention and care, Tiny was soon back on his paws.
As soon as our Vet Team was satisfied he was in good health, Tiny quickly found a new home and is happily ever after with our Vet Clinic receptionist, Melissa. Tiny’s new owner, Melissa, fell in love with him instantly. What he may lack in size, he certainly makes up for in character and his new family have been laughing at his antics from the moment they brought him home.
Mayhew’s Animal Welfare Officers and Vet Team respond to hundreds of abandoned, neglected and abused animals every year and provide ongoing support to carers and pet owners in vulnerable situations. Thanks to your kind donations we can help even more animals like Tiny.
