The Story of Betsy

A tale of a courageous little dog named Betsy and
her will to live.

Life for Betsy before she came to NSWAR must have been horrendous.

Betsy arrived at the rescue in a weakened state due to emaciation and dehydration. 
She was unable to eat, drink or walk due to the severe
matting of her coat.  Betsy endured agony when going to the toilet
as the excreta sat next to her skin (under the matted fur) causing
severe scalding and skin problems.  The pictures show the condition
of Betsy when she arrived at NSWAR.

An experienced NSWAR groomer spent 4 hours snipping and clipping with
surgical precision, to remove the life threatening cocoon of stinking,
matted fur and debris from Betsy's tiny body. 

The skeletal frame of this young dog was revealed.

Betsy was gently hydrobathed and thus marking the beginning to her journey
on the road to recovery and a new life.

For many weeks Betsy received veterinary care, proper nutrition
and much love and care.
