Konnie arrived at DBARC with an obvious fear of humans which brought out difficult behavioural issues. Having lived a life of neglect and abuse it was no surprise that she had problems adjusting to the kindness of humans. But, the DBARC team were sure there was something else going on.
Sure enough, it was discovered that she had extremely high pressure in one of her eyes and it could not be saved. As soon as it was removed, a remarkable transformation in Konnie took place. She was much calmer, accepting of humans and showed strong signs fast, of wanting to get on and enjoy her life.
The veterinary team explained that she would have been living with a great deal of unimaginable pain for a long time with her eye being in the state it was. The relief that she must have felt after her surgery was clear for everyone caring for her to see.
Following that operation, she’s had a few further issues, her remaining eye has required veterinary care but she is well on the road to being a healthy and happy dog, all set to join her new family very soon.
