Webcam for recovering charity dog

Cute Dodger looks at a pic of himself on a computer.
A webcam has been set up so that well-wishers can monitor the recovery of a cute terrier, saved by donations.

An animal charity was inundated with cash after making an appeal for Dodger who needed a life-saving operation after a bad car accident.

More than 3,000 was collected and now the 18-month-old pooch is recovering.

A charity spokesman said: "We thought it would be nice to let people know how he's getting on by having him on the webcam on our website."

The Wood Green Animal Shelter, Cambridgeshire, had hundreds of people and businesses offering donations and poetry publishing company Forward Press donated the full 3,000 cost of the surgery.

Dodger is recovering after his operation.
Any spare cash is going to be put into a new Dodger Appeal fund and will pay for the terrier's care until he's fully better and for urgent medical attention for other animals that the charity looks after.

Dodger's owner has not been traced and he will be rehomed in the future.
