Dog found with leg nearly severed

A COLLIE dog found tied with a rope that almost severed his right leg was rescued on Friday.

Brigid Cullen said the distressed dog was found in a field outside Taghmon.

'He had been tied with a rope that cut into his hind leg, almost severing it,' said Brigid.

'Gangrene had set in and the dog had lost a lot of body weight due to the infection and the fact that he could not reach food or water,' she said.

'Rocky', as he has been named, is now in the safe hands of one of the WSPCA's voluntary carers and is responding to treatment.

Brigid expressed her thanks to the people who found him and brought him to the WSPCA.
