Minnie the five-year-old Bulldog was taken to The Veterinary Clinic in Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire to be put to sleep. 

She had been used for breeding and had recently had puppies. After this litter, her owner did not want to pay for operations she needed on both back legs, so took her to be euthanized.

Minnie’s legs cause her pain, discomfort and severely limit her mobility. It is unclear how long she has been in this state.

This week we are sharing advice tips and real-life stories to help you ensure you keep both your dog and livestock safe.
