The liver and brown springer spaniel called Remy, has blown the cruciate ligament in her right hind leg.

The 38-year-old dad from Currie from Currie said: “Remy is my daughter’s world, Rose can’t understand why Remy has to rest and not move or play.”

The much loved pet needs a £4,000 operation to fix her knee, but this is not covered by pet insurance.

Unable to afford the costly vet bill, Mr MacLeod launched a GoFundMe page to save his daughter’s best friend.

He said: “Any help anyone can give us would make my little girl’s world and make our other furry little girl’s world whole again by playing fetch.”
