An abandoned puppy nicknamed “Wonky” has been able to take her first steps after receiving physiotherapy for two weeks.
11-week-old Wonky, now renamed Juliette, was taken from her mother as a very young puppy and abandoned. Her front leg tendons failed to develop, which was made worse by poor diet and separation from her mother.
Manager of the Leeds Dogs Trust, Amanda Sands said: “We think she was removed from her mother then abandoned. Because she’s gone without the nutrition of her mother’s milk her front legs haven’t developed.
“She has an extreme case of knuckling – where the front tendons contract, the front paws bend inwards and she balances on the knuckle joints.”
Staff at the Trust say people from all over the world have offered to adopt Juliette.
