The family of an eight-month-old puppy are appealing for donations to save her life after she was run over.
Eight-month-old collie, Mysti, has been left with a hip fracture, spinal fracture and a dislocated hip.
She now needs life-saving surgery and her owners are asking for people to donate what they can to help.
Owner Vicky Tasker said Mysti escaped through the front door of their home in Liff on Friday night.
She was hit in Church Street by a male driver who stopped for a couple of minutes before leaving the scene.
Vicky said: “It’s like having a new born baby.
“She can’t even sit up in her cage.”
Vets have told Vicky and her husband, Donald, that Mysti will not be able to walk again without the surgery and may need to be put down.
‘We have to do everything for her ‘
“It has been a nightmare,” said Vicky.
“We’ve not ate, we’ve not slept. We’re just taking it day by day.”
The surgery costs upwards of £3,000 – a huge sum that the family cannot cover themselves.
“They are reaching out to their community for assistance in this time of need. So far just over £500 has been raised in the Facebook fundraiser.
Vicky said that the costs could even amount to £7,000 if Mysti is unable to heal in time for the operation.
A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “Around 7.30pm on Friday, 4 June, officers received a report of a dog injured after being struck by a car in Kirkton of Liff. Officers are working to trace the vehicle involved to establish more detail on the circumstances.”
