Rescued dog that needed amputation seeks new home


A rescued dog who needed his leg amputated after being found on the street hasn’t let it dampen his spirits and is looking for a happy new home.

Galway County Council’s dog warden found the dog, now named Georgie, by the side of the road at Tribaun, Belclare last week after getting reports of a hurt animal.

Georgie unfortunately had to have part of his leg amputated, but the resilient boy has bounced back nicely on his three good legs remaining.

In an update to their post last week the county council said that Georgie is with MADRA looking for a new home and is “looking forward to the next chapter”.

“Galway County Council would like to give a special thanks to Cian Lynch and all the team at the Pet Health Centre in Tuam for their care and assistance in helping Georgie through his recuperation over the last number of days”.

“We would also like to thank MADRA for taking Georgie into their care and who will be putting out a foster appeal for him.”
