Molly the rescue dog has a heart condition, but luckily she’s getting a pacemaker fitted – on Valentine’s Day.

She has a condition called heart block which slows down her heart rate and could shorten her life.

An online campaign raised just over £4,000 to fund the operation.

Molly had a skin condition when she arrived at the RSPCA’s Coventry branch last May.

She’s now recovered from that, but during an operation to neuter her the vet noticed the heart condition.
