Have your say

A dog so badly neglected her matted fur caused her to go blind has wagged her tail for the first time since being dumped outside a Sheffield veterinary practice in a cardboard box.

Vet Molly Graham, aged 32, who is looking after the dog, named Princess Peggy by staff, said it was the worst case of neglect she had ever seen.

The elderly poodle-type dog, believed to be between eight and 13 years old, was badly emaciated and extremely sick, and vets had to remove her eyes and 32 of her teeth because they were so rotten.
