Long John Baldy
This beautiful, gentle but lively dog was found “living rough” in a garage. He arrived at JFD suffering from a severe flea allergy. An injection, followed by a skin bath and lots of tender loving care aided his speedy recovery.
Thanks to a photo appeal in the Derby Evening Telegraph a loving home was soon offered. Rechristened Jib, he became a happy, loving and contented pet and visited the JFD Rescue Centre regularly throughout his very long life.
Perhaps the saddest part to this story is that with sensible care and prompt attention his unnecessary suffering could have been avoided.
The cost of his treatment? Just £18!
