A DOG, believed to have been bred on a Welsh puppy farm, is recovering after undergoing major surgery for a life-threatening condition.
Barney, a West Highland terrier, was born with an abnormal blood vessel going around the liver, which caused toxins to build up, which affected behaviour and growth.
Barney’s previous owners gave up the dog to the Worthing & District Animal Rescue Service (WADARS), as the cost of veterinary treatment and the worry for its welfare was too much for them. Billy Elliott, senior animal rescue officer at WADARS, said: “The vet is really pleased. Barney seems to have come out really well, he’s much happier and his tail’s wagging.
