About Me:

Hi I'm Blue!

I am the latest recipient of WAG's Critical Care Program, a fund 100% supported by community donors to help injured and sick animals in need. I arrived at WAG after being attacked by a group of dogs so I was rushed to the vets and spent several hours in surgery having multiple lacerations and abrasions. Fortunately for me, some of the vet staff were kindly able to foster me afterwards and take me home to monitor my recoverny for a few days.

It has been nearly two weeks since by surgery and I am feeling so much better. I am in a wonderful foster home being looked after by WAG volunteers. I have been taking my antibiotics, pain medications and have been having my wounds cleaned daily.

I love naps and cuddles, and my energy levels are increasing so I am enjoying walks and fun times outside. So much that sometimes the hardest part is getting me to come inside and rest up! I am wearing a cone to stop me itching my scabs, but that is all part of the process.

I am the sweetest boy, I seek affection and want to be near my human carers all the time. They have been making sure I feel comfortable when I see other dogs around, as I may be weary after the attack, but I am pretty happy go lucky and am a strong, brave boy.

I am looking for a home that will keep me safe and love me forever. I am healing every day but am having a checkup this week to remove my stitches and make sure I am on track. Please keep an eye on my profile for further updates.

My Story:

My owners loved me very much, but after I was injured they knew that WAG would be able to get me the medical care I so badly needed and help keep me safe.

WAG is now fundraising for Blue's medical costs, medication, aftercare and possible further surgery. As well as anything else that Blue will need!

If you are not in a position to adopt Blue, please consider donating for WAG'S Critical Care Fund to help Blue and other animals like him get the second chance they deserve.
