Wanda was thrown over the fence of a home in the remote village of Tydd St Giles, riddled with sarcoptic mange, barely able to open her eyes and with most of her fur fallen out.

She had recently had puppies.

Her story prompted an outpouring of support and donations from across the country after her story went viral on social media.

One of her fans is all the way from Australia - outback police officer Tiff N Kip.

Shelley Ridgeon, of Ravenswood Pet Rescue, said: “Wanda is making fantastic progress with her foster carer who bathes her daily in special medicated lotion, drops her eyes twice a day and cleans her ears.

“At her vets visit today everything went well, she is still anaemic and so we will be giving her cooked liver this week.

“One eye is healing but the other isn’t quite as good.

“Another injection was given yesterday and will be given another next week also and she is on more antibiotics.

“Someone has sent a coat with her name on, a little girl asked her mum to contact us she has spent her pocket money on a blanket for Wanda, we’ve had donations of food and money - it is incredible how loved this dog is.”
