Wonky, a disabled puppy, is looking for a loving home
This adorable, 11-week-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier mix was abandoned on the street and separated from her mother at too young an age — which has left the sweetie-pie with a form of “knuckling” on her front legs. That condition gave Wonky her name, but it also makes it difficult for her to walk. Now under the care of U.K. animal group Dogs Trust, Wonky is looking for a new home — and a new owner who’ll ensure she gets the care she needs. The good news? With that love and attention, Wonky will outgrow her name — and she’ll be doing happy puppy dances and walking on four strong legs soon.
It is thought the little pooch’s limbs didn’t grow properly after she was removed from her mother too early – then dumped by her callous owner.
But only two weeks after she was first brought in, staff at the Dogs Trust centre in Leeds are already concerned that Wonky’s ‘untraditional’ looks will make it harder for her to attract an owner.
Manager Amanda Sands said: “She’s had a very tough start in life. She was taken from her mother too early and was then having to fend for herself on the streets at just nine-weeks old.
“She isn’t a traditionally pretty pooch but she’s a lovely girl with a great character.
Anyone interested in giving Wonky a home should call the Dogs Trust on 0113 281 4920.
