Darcy was found after a member of the public reported a stray dog hanging around his own dogs kennels and called the council warden to come and collect her. The warden was shocked when he arrived, she was covered in ticks, very underweight and struggling to walk, he took her straight to the vets who x-rayed her and found she had been born with a terrible birth defect. Imagine the excruciating pain she has lived through for the last 18-24 months without any medical help, the diagnosis is Patella luxation 4th degree, which basically means her tibia is twisted 90 degrees and her kneecaps are permanently dislocated. Darcy manages to get around in a fashion but we would like to give this young girl a far better quality of life and then find her a loving home once she is fully recovered.
Unfortunately the operation for both legs will cost in the region of €1,000 so we really need to rely on the generosity of like minded supporters to achieve this goal. Darcy is the most gentle, loving girl and constantly wags her tail and loves to have a fuss made of her. The name choice came after she struck a pose trying to pinch some dog biscuits out the tub and managed to strike a ballerina pose, "Darcy" seemed so apt.
If we can raise €500 initially, we can get the first leg operated on and then hopefully raise the rest whilst she recuperates before the second operation, I know times are very hard at the moment but if you can spare even €1 it will all add up and help Darcy live a normal life, thank you.
