Witham: Blinded stray dog from Russia finds loving foster home
5:00pm Saturday 28th September 2013 in News
A partially blind stray dog is being fostered by a kind-hearted woman after being rescued from Russia.
Lyn Davies, 55, of Maltings Lane in Witham, is caring for Jessie, who was blinded in one eye when he was viciously beaten by teenagers.
He lived in a yard in Troitsk, Russia, belonging to Elena Nikolaeva until he was attacked.
Elena nursed Jessie back to health and even went on television to appeal for new owners, but Jessie remained homeless until Blind Dogs UK found Mrs Davies to foster him, where he will stay until he is adopted.
Mrs Davies, who has fostered three other dogs, said: “I’m just a dog lover and already own a blind dog called Lucy. They are no more work than sighted dogs, they cope very well.
“Jessie is frightened of tall people but apart from that is very loving."
Jessie is now looking for a permanent home, anyone interested should email BDRUKrehoming@yahoo.com
