Layla was found on the road with both back legs broken. She was only a few months old at the time.

James Evans said: “We rescued Layla and she received vet treatment in Bucharest. “She is now in her foster home in the UK but sadly requires additional extensive treatment for her legs as she is in severe pain.”

Without this treatment life for Layla will be impossible. She urgently needs two operations, each will cost in the region of £2,000.

James said: “We are trying to raise £2,000 for the first operation.”

He said: “My family has lived in Ely for 10 years and my mum walks our dogs, Bailey and Layla everyday.

“Our other dog Bailey is about a year old, as we got her after the passing of our previous dog Jess.

“Our dog Jess was hit by a car at two years old. We were told she would not live long despite surgery; however, we went for the surgery anyway.

“She passed away at 13 years old last year. My mum would just like to provide the same opportunity to this dog.”
