A puppy has been blinded and another may lose its sight after they were doused in dangerous chemicals and left for dead in a park.
Maggie and Matilda are two female Staffordshire Bull terrier pups that were found abandoned in a park on Merseyside with serious ulceration to their eyes.
Vets have tried to save the sight of both of the puppies but tragically Maggie is now blind and Matilda is undergoing operations on her eyes.
Blinded: The puppies were doused in dangerous chemicals and left for dead in a park in Bootle, Liverpool.
They were found abandoned in a park in Bootle covered in the mystery substance which has discoloured their fur and could have caused serious infection.
Animal welfare officers at Freshfields Rescue Centre are now caring for them and are appealing for donations after spending more than £2,000 in vet fees and operations.
said: “One of the of the pups is blind
, the other has some vision but must be operated
on today if that vision is to be saved

‘Both pups have severe ulceration of the eyes and the ophthalmic specialist believes this to be a result of some chemical having been spilt over the pups.
‘The skin condition is possibly also related to this although we cannot rule out mange at this stage.
‘Freshfields has had to pay out £433 so far in vet fees and will be paying in the region of £2,000 for the first operation.
‘The blind puppy isn’t currently well enough to be operated on so we will be monitoring her in the short term and a decision about her treatment made in the next few days.
