Emaciated bulldog found wandering streets looking for new home

An emaciated English Bulldog found wandering the street of Morley is hoping a new home is just around the corner.

The three-year old, named Esme by the team who at Dogs Trust Leeds, weighed just 11 kilogrammes when she was found last month, half of the weight she should be.

Amanda Sands, Dogs Trust Leeds, Manager, said: “He ribs were almost poking through her skin when she was found, and she was very weak. It was very sad sight to see. She has been making good progress as she has been with us for a few weeks now, so fingers crossed her luck is about to change and she is going to find the forever family she deserves.”

The team caring for Esme say that she will need a patient family who will help her settle into life in a home once again as she may have been a stray for some time.

She would like a secure garden to play in and would enjoy sharing her life with older teenage children. The team at Dogs Trust would like her to be the only pet so she can lap up all the love.

Amanda adds: “We don’t know anything about Esme’s history as she was found as a stray but whatever she has been through in the past, she now definitely deserves to find a loving home.

“We would like her to live close to Dogs Trust Leeds so that our vet can monitor her weight and general health, as we want to make sure she makes a full recovery, and of course it will be lovely to see her.”
