Video: Pampered Pets dog rescue centre asks, can you give Ted the Shar Pei a home - and a facelift?

Emma White with Ted, an eight month old Shar Pei puppy, who needs a 'face lift' to correct the problem of too much skin rolling over his eyes.

A homeless puppy is in need of a ‘facelift’ to prevent his sight from being permanently damaged.

Wrinkly-featured Ted, a Chinese Shar Pei, was taken in by Pampered Pets, in Glevering, near Woodbridge, after being confiscated from a Suffolk household.

He now needs a new home and a makeover, after it was discovered he suffers from a condition which causes folds of skin to rub against his eyes.

Eight-month-old Ted arrived at Pampered Pets rescue centre and luxury kennels on Sunday, when officers took him away from his previous owners.

Jane Lee, owner of Pampered Pets, which also takes in strays picked up by Suffolk Coastal’s dog warden, said: “Ted is adorable. He loves everybody but his life was being made miserable and we were asked to take him in.

“He came to us full of fleas and with a skin problem. We bathed him and took him to the vets but found out that he needs a facelift or it could become much worse.”

Emma White, who works at the kennels, added: “He has not had a great start in life and he’s a lucky boy to have come in to be cared for by us.”

Ted suffers from a condition which, left untreated, could cause permanent sight problems. The surgery he requires will cost about £1,000.

He is not the only homeless hound at Pampered Pets, where several dogs of varying breeds are still waiting to find new owners.

Anyone who thinks they can offer Ted or another dog a new home can call 01728 747760. The team also welcomes prospective customers at Green Acres, Glevering, Hacheston, between 11am and 3pm. Dogs in need of homes are also online at pamperedpets.co.uk.
