  4. Three-legged dog Missy seeks new home

    An abandoned three-legged dog from West Yorkshire is looking for a new home.


    Heavily pregnant boxer-cross Missy was found abandoned and wandering the streets of Dalton, Huddersfield, in December, enduring bad weather with no access to food or water.

    But despite everything she'd been through she gave birth to eight healthy pups just days before Christmas.


    The pups, all named after pantomimes, are now preparing to head off to new homes, but Missy is still waiting at the Dogs Trust in Leeds for someone to take her in.

    Quote Message: It is so tragic whenever a stray dog is found, but it was the depths of winter and she was so heavily pregnant she, and her unborn litter, were very vulnerable." from Amanda Sands Manager, Dogs Trust Leeds
