Fern pic3 Are you the perfect match for a loving three-legged lurcher called Fern?

Fern is a wonderful dog who is seven years old and is currently being cared for at RSPCA Newport Animal Centre.

Sadly, she recently had one of her front legs amputated after she became injured in a road traffic collision – but is coping extremely well without it.

Kennel and cattery supervisor Samantha Richmond said: “Fern is such a lovely girl. We are looking for a quiet home for her and she would be able to live with sensible older children. She is good with other dogs too.

“Fern came into the RSPCA Merthyr Tydfil Clinic with a leg injury and sadly on veterinary advice her leg was removed.

“But she is coping wonderfully and she had her stitches out the other day. Fern pic1

“She is still recovering however, and every now and again she will let out a little cry, bless her. But she is walking about just fine and loves spending her time down in our paddock area.

“She is a lovely little dog and we know there is a perfect person out there who will be able to give her a loving forever home.”
