Ruby, an English Bull Terrier was seized from a person in Ballymun. She pleaded guilty on two counts – failing to get veterinary treatment and failing to safeguard the dogs welfare. She surrendered the dog to the DSPSCA, was prosecuted under the 2013 Animal Health and Welfare Act and received a fine of €300.
Ruby had a nail bed infection with broken dew claw, skin allergies and infected eyes as well as being underweight. Her condition improved quickly with veterinary treatment during her rehabilitation in the DSPCA.
