Have your say

The 18-month-old mongrel, named Indy, was flown back from Goa in September by animal-loving couple Angela and Ian Szczypka, who spotted her while on holiday.

Despite their plans to relax on the beach, the Szczypkas fell in love with the injured puppy during a visit to a rescue centre, where they witnessed “shocking” conditions. The two-month-old pup had lost the use of her back legs after suffering a horrific attack by another dog. Angela and Ian, who have their own smallholding of animals back at home, were so moved by the sight of Indy that they returned to volunteer at the centre every day until they left.
