Nell Burges with her dog Kanella.
They Qualified for Buckham Fair Championships at Dorset Dog festival Bournemouth. Kanella was a street dog in Greece who was badly abused by farmers as she tried to scavange for food. She was shot and beaten and just about managed to survive on her own. Kanells and Nell were destined to meet. She quickly fell in love with her and decided to ensure that the rest of Kanella’s life would be one filled with love and caring. With that, Nell made the decision to bring her back to the UK.
They now both share their lives together, always supporting each other through difficult times. Just before the show, Kanella became poorly and underwent investigations. The findings resulted in urgent surgery to remove buck shot.
