Injured Dog Frozen With Fear on Highway!


Stephan was spotted laying on the grass verge between the busy lanes of the N1 highway!

Whilst he growled when we approached it was clear he couldn’t get up to escape, his protruding ribs also made it clear he’d been there a while!

A few nibbles and screams later and he was on his way to Vet Point!

Diagnosis: concussion, anaemia and tick bite fever.

Happily with the right meds, time and TLC Stephan should make a full recovery!

He’s learning to trust, loves dogs (not tested with cats but as he’s currently Bambi on ice, he isn’t a threat) and needs his forever home!

Approximately seven months old, he’ll be the smaller side of medium when fully grown! We do the veterinary care, you do the TLC!

If you can offer Stephan a forever home please email:
