Emaciated Saluki left to wander the streets hobbling in black football socks

In a heartbreaking video  caught on a surveillance camera, an emaciated Saluki was seen hobbling onto the front of a garage wearing black football socks. The video, released on Friday, showed the brindle-coated dog wearing the black socks on three of her legs all riddled with open sores; her other leg had been broken.

According to ExpressNews, the dog was rescued from a gas station in Lepton, West Yorkshire last month and she needed to be sedated in order for veterinarians to remove the socks. A Good Samaritan had contacted the RSPCA who have launched an investigation.

Meanwhile, the Saluki, now dubbed Susie is also being treated for sarcoptic mange and ringworm. Susie is currently at the RSPCA’s Greater Manchester Hospital where she has slowly been gaining weight and her health has started to improve, however there are fears she may have to have her front leg amputated.

“Her skin conditions, which are contagious, means she is having to be kept in isolation and is receiving daily treatment, and it looks as though her broken leg will need to be amputated as it had started to heal in the wrong position,” stated Inspector Goulding of the RSPCA.

Anyone who recognizes this dog is asked to contact the RSPCA and call 0300 123 8018.
