On arrival, Reggie was in a sorry state. His skull was hairless and he had severe skin lesions over his entire back. Moreover, as frequently in this breed, Reggie suffered from infections in both eyeballs due to the folds of skin falling over his eyes. He was therefore almost blind.

Volunteers had to provide care to this area 24 hours a day. sussex decided that a facelift was the best way to restore her sight. He therefore underwent a heavy intervention in this direction 2 weeks ago.

A recovery that is going well

The young canine shows unparalleled resilience. Moreover, he is extremely grateful and affectionate towards the volunteers of the RSPCA.
