Thousands raised allow Benji the pooch to get first hip replacement

A local Dog has succesfully undergone a hip replacement, after a 'Just Giving' page raised thousands of pounds.

In August last year, Stacey Cleator - who lives on Island - rescued Dog Benji from North Macedonia.

When she found the pup  had severe hip dysplasia, she decided it was her mission to raise £8,000 to allow Benji to have both hips replaced, and be able to live a 'life free from pain.'

In an update on the just giving page, Stacey has confirmed Benji has had his first replacement done - with all going well and the pooch recovering at home.

She says her beloved Pet 'still has a long way to go' and has thanked everyone for their support and well wishes.
