Overweight dog with claws growing into paws finds forever home with police help

The owners allowed police to remove the dog after they attended an incident in Nottinghamshire and noticed it needed help.

Nottinghamshire Police said:

‘A dog who was found in an extremely bad state with his claws growing into his paw pads has found his forever home.

‘Police had attended a separate incident but while on scene spotted an extremely overweight Staffordshire Bull Terrier, who could barely walk.

‘Refusing to leave him in that state the officers stepped in and spoke with Ziggy’s owners.

‘It was decided they couldn’t give him the care and attention he needed – resulting in them allowing the police to take him and help find his forever home.

‘Taking Ziggy to Worksop police station officers and staff looked after him and tried to help him get back on all four paws – even using the lift so he could go outside.

‘A year later eight-year-old Ziggy has now lost an amazing amount of weight and is back on his paws bounding through fields.

‘Our officers don’t just care about keeping people safe but animals too – thanks to the work of the response officers for stepping in, Ziggy is now living his best life in a loving home with his new owners.’
