Plucky Sherry has been fitted with a set of wheels after being shot in the back and paralysed in Hungary earlier this year.
She was found and rescued by volunteers from charity Twitchy Noses, which works to rehome Hungarian strays in the UK.
Vets were unable to repair the damage to Sherry’s spine, but volunteers nursed her back to health – and even got her a made-to-measure set of wheels made.
After being flown to the UK earlier this year, Sherry is being looked after by foster carer Emma Billington in Barton Moss, Eccles.
Emma, who runs dog-minding business Daycare4Dogs, has re-homed four Hungarian dogs and is hoping someone can offer Sherry the new home she deserves for Christmas.
Emma said: “When I first heard about Sherry I did think it may have been kinder to have her put to sleep after she was injured – but when you see her running around on these wheels you can see she just wants to be treated as a normal dog.
She is full of life and so affectionate – she loves being cuddled and just wants to be around humans.
“She is full of life and so affectionate – she loves being cuddled and just wants to be around humans.
“She loves having her wheels strapped on and can really get up some speed now she’s used to them.” Sherry has recently been able to start wagging her tail again.
Emma said: “Sherry is such a lovely dog and we are desperate to find her some new owners who can take care of her for Christmas.
“The charity will pay for all her care. She gets on really well with other dogs and loves playing.”
