A new home has been found for a dog injured after being hit by a car near Lichfield.

Following an appeal on The Lichfield Blog, a number of people offered a new home to the Staffordshire Bull Terrier who was run over in Hammerwich.

The female dog suffered a broken leg in the accident – but has now found a new home with one of the people who is nursing her back to health.

A spokesperson for Lichfield District Council said:

“We had around 20 responses from local people who expressed an interest in giving her a new home and I’ve just heard that a nurse from Pool House Vets who have been caring for the dog have decided to keep her after all.

“The nurse has two children, who took to the dog straight away and a garden so she will be able to stretch her legs – once she’s out of plaster!

“We have told all the people who were interested in her that we’ve found the dog a new home, but to keep checking the website to see if they like any of the other lost dogs who are not claimed by their owners after seven days.”

Lichfield District Council takes lost dogs to kennels in Coven where they wait for their owners to claim them. However, if the dog is not claimed after seven days, anyone can come forward to offer it a good home. If you are interested in giving one of the dogs a home contact Sunnyside Kennels on 01902 790618.
