Seven-month-old rescue pup Noah lives in a world of pain.
The sad little boy suffered multiple fractures to his front leg when he was just 10 weeks old.
The leg was left to mend by itself and while the fractures have healed they did so out of alignment.
This is causing him immense pain and when we sought specialist veterinary help in Turkey the advice we had was that the only remedy for him would be amputation.
AFOT refused to accept this was the only the option for such a young pup, and so we took his x-rays to an orthopeadic vet in England and asked for a second opinion.
His verdict was that there is every chance that something can be done to save his leg and so we are arranging to transport Noah to the UK just before Christmas.
He will be taken into foster care by AFOT Trustee and Committee member Andy Gough where he will join him, his wife Jane and their Turkish rescue dog Dolly in Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk.
And local Suffolk vet Duncan Hole has offered to perform the surgery for AFOT at a reduced charity rate.
However, the cost of the procedure is still likely to be expensive and so we are urgently seeking help to raise enough funds to save Noah's leg.
We will not know the precise cost until Noah is given a full physical examination after his arrival in Suffolk. However, we are setting an initial appeal target of £1250 in the hope of generating funds to enable the surgery to go ahead when he arrives.
Dogs can operate on three legs but this can often lead to complications later in life. Besides if there is a chance of saving Noah's leg then we at AFOT want to do everything we can to give him the chance of living a full, healthy and pain-free life on all four legs. He deserves nothing less.
Please help us - your donations are so important for this poor sad young pup.
