The scars covering her face might reflect a painfully sad past, but Ginny hasn’t given up hope of a brighter future after being taken in by Blue Cross.
Sadly, though, the six-year-old lurcher is being overlooked for the loving home she so desperately deserves due to her disfigured appearance.
Nobody knows what she might have been through but, with deep scars all over her face, we suspect that she may have been used for illegal hunting.
X-rays have also revealed an old fracture in one of her legs – another sure sign of the neglect and pain she likely experienced before being abandoned.
She arrived at our Lewknor rehoming centre in Oxfordshire at the start of the year after being rescued as a stray by another charity in Wales.
But despite the trauma she has been through at the hands of humans, Ginny is a loving girl that thrives in the company of people and would be a brilliant companion for the right person.
