A woman who lives in the Flamstead area of England heard a strange noise while getting ready for bed one night recently. The sound came from her front porch and when she went to investigate she could not believe her eyes: it was a dog. Not just a dog, but an injured dog who looked confused and sad about its current predicament. Right after she opened the door a car sped away and she realized that someone had dumped the injured dog on her doorstep, abandoning it. Not only was the dog terrified, but she was in desperate need of medical care, too. So, the woman called the RSPCA. An inspector from the group named Phil Norman came to get the dog and while she was waiting, the woman reviewed her security camera footage. Sadly, the camera caught the entire incident.
The camera showed a man arriving at the woman’s house carrying the dog. He dropped the dog on the doorstep and then left. He was wearing dark clothing, light shoes, and a light baseball cap. The dog, a five year old greyhound mix, was given the name Snow White. Then, she was rushed to a veterinarian for care. The poor dog had a large, severe open fracture on a hind leg. The untreated injury is so severe that doctors are not sure if her leg can be saved at this point. They are trying everything they can to save the leg, but are worried about the risk of infection by using a metal plate to repair the leg.
No one is sure why someone would abandon such a sweet dog that was in such desperate need of help. At this point, investigators are looking for the prepetrator. Snow White is now under the care she needs and will hopefully be up for adoption in the near future once her injury is healed.
