Wounded Womble is looking for a new home

October 11, 2010

Named after the characters of Elisabeth Beresford’s books, The Wombles, which he resembles, Womble the Pomeranian has survived being hit by car and is now ready for a new home.

Suffering a fractured pelvis and in shock, Womble was rushed to The Lost Dogs' Home by Animal Ambulance and has received treatment here for the past fortnight.

“He’s a gorgeous dog. Very sweet and friendly. He’s been on constant IV pain relief and is now moving well and is able to put weight on his hind legs.” said Dr Alan Bolton

“Womble’s a lucky dog: despite the fracture to his pelvis, there was no damage to the nerves or hip joints.

His new owner will need to ensure Womble is kept confined for the next three weeks, so his pelvis can fully heal. There shouldn’t be any ongoing problems for Womble.

He’s a great dog and has been a wonderful patient for us. He now gives us a bum wiggle, which is proof of how well he’s recovering.” 

Two-year-old Womble has been desexed, microchipped, wormed and heartworm tested. He also receives a free post-adoption training session with Planet K9, which he will be able to take once his pelvis has fully healed.
