Ted, an eight-week-old greyhound terrier cross, was taken to Burgess Hill’s Heath Veterinary Clinic with a jaw problem but his owners never returned for him.

Happy Breeds Foundation, a local charity set up to award grants to help people on low incomes to care for their dogs, donated £500 towards the cost of Ted’s surgery and after care as his owners could not be contacted.

After surgery, the puppy had to wear a muzzle for three weeks and was only allowed to remove it to eat his pureed meals.

Trainee veterinary nurse Rachel Saunders offered Ted a foster home for his first weekend as he still required continuous care, but her family fell in love with Ted and decided to adopt him.
