An orphaned dog who was run over and left to die has been taken to Ely for life-saving treatment.
Layla, a cross-breed puppy, was found abandoned by the road with both back legs broken in her native Romania.
She was rescued by British dog lover Claire Church whose appeal caught the eye of Ely mum Dawn Evans, 54.
Dawn sprung into action and decided to foster the poorly pup.
She paid for Layla's jabs and passport to get her into the UK – but they now need to raise approximately £4,000 to pay for Ely vets to fix her back legs after initial treatment in Bucharest was botched.
To do this they have setup a gofundme campaign.
Dawn, who is looking after Layla at home, said: "I saw her on their social media page. She looked really sad so I thought I would do what I could to help her.
"They had them out in concrete kennels. I saw a photo of her trying to get a drink of water and there was snow in the background. She must have been frozen.
"She is a sweetheart and my main aim is to give her love and a family she's never had. She was the most traumatised creature you'd ever see."
Layla needs two operations: one to reattach the pins which have come loose in one leg and another to repair a ruptured ligament.
Dawn continued: "When she arrived her fur was all yellow with urine.
"She is a million times better than she was but if they don't do the surgery, she can't be on painkillers indefinitely – it will affect her kidneys."
"I just want for her to get better so then there will be a better chance of her being adopted.
"I would like to help another dog, but if no one wants her I will keep her."
Claire, who co-ordinated Layla's rescue, says without this treatment life for the cross-breed will be impossible. She urgently needs two operations and each will cost in the region of £2,000.
If the money is raised it is hoped Layla can have her first operation in late May.
