Eight-year-old Ava – a Boxer cross Labrador – is currently in the care of Clymping Dog Sanctuary.
The pooch arrived with a ‘horrible skin condition’ which desperately needs vet treatment – the rescue believes they will have to fork out at least £1,000.
In a post on social media, the sanctuary has appealed to its followers for funds to help cover the bills.
A spokesperson for the sanctuary said: “At Clymping we want to help every dog to have the life they deserve, but it’s not always easy. By agreeing to take Ava on, we knew we were taking on some big vet bills.
“Ava, as you can see, has a horrible skin condition that is out of control and causing her real pain and discomfort.
“We have made the decision to take her on, get her the treatment she needs and foot the bills, then get her well enough to spend her later years with a family that love her.”
Once she is well again, Ava, who has been described as a ‘super loving girl’, will be up for adoption.
Happy to live with other dogs and children over ten, she will make a brilliant addition to the right home. The sanctuary said she needs a family who can ‘help her feel better and live a happy life’.
