A SICK puppy which was the centre of a social media campaign raising awareness of back-street breeders has been released from the vets she was being treated at.

As reported, Samantha Crouch started a Facebook group after her puppy Maggie became critically ill two weeks after she bought her from a buy and sell site.

The group, called Maggie Making Her Mark, has attracted hundreds of comments and likes.

Maggie was released from the vets yesterday and is recovering at her Fareham home, after she contracted parvovirus and went blind in one eye.

Vets believe she was much younger than advertised, at only five weeks old, and that she had not built up the antibodies needed to be separated from her mother.

Mrs Crouch, 30, said she was delighted to see Maggie return home. She said: ‘I never thought I’d get her home. I want to take this opportunity again to thank each and everyone of you for supporting us along the way. Together we have all made a little difference to the battle against back-street breeders and puppy farming, this battle will continue on but in a more positive way, with Maggie at the forefront by my side.’
