Lola needed our medicine, patience and care...
The worst part of Lola's journey was over, but it was a long road to recovery. Her skin was scarred and sore, and her fur was patchy. She was also suffering from a painful hip problem and a serious bacterial infection in her tummy. Our vets also suspected the two-year-old had already had a litter of puppies previously - she'd been through a lot in her short life.
Like all dogs rescued from the clutches of cruel traders, Lola needed our medicine, patience and care - and that's before her puppies were born. Lola's labour began within days of her arrival and with help from our emergency vets, she gave birth to four beautiful puppies. But heartbreakingly, after everything she'd been through, two of them were stillborn.
