The dogs were brought to the RSPCA. Then, they were checked by a vet. Mom was in need of surgery on her back leg. Her tiny daughter, however, needed further testing. For now, they were taken to a foster home where they could rest and get a good meal.
The pair was taken back to the medical center the following day. It was determined that Mom, now named Peggy, surely needed expensive veterinary care, whether they decided to amputate and fit her for a prosthetic limb or decide to repair the leg so it’s as comfortable as possible. No one knows for sure if the injury was caused on purpose.
