A rescued dog that provides companionship at a care home is to have a hip operation paid for by residents and staff.
William first arrived at Invernevis House in Fort William earlier this year.
He had previously been found neglected in Cyprus by a couple from Keith in Moray who were visiting the island.
Residents and staff at NHS Highland-run Invernevis House have raised £8,000 for the operation.
William, who is five, is set to have his operation in February.
However, he needs to be clear of an ongoing infection for at least a month before it can take place.
Invernevis House manager Kit Cameron said: “William is a huge favourite with the residents here and puts a smile on everyone’s face.
“However, it hasn’t always been a life full of love for William.”
