Suffolk teacher spends £3,000 rescuing stray dog

A teacher from Suffolk has spent £3,000 rescuing a dying dog she found in Cambodia. Elise Dixie has flown the animal, called Snooky, more than 6,000 miles to her home in Felixstowe.

Snooky was just two months old when Elise found him on a beach in Cambodia where she was working as a volunteer teacher.

She said: "His stomach was distended. He had no fur. He had severe mange so he was constantly scrabbling at his skin which meant bleeding. He had a chain round his neck which was cutting into him and obviously making it extremely difficult for him to breathe."
