Charlie was found on the side of the road yesterday unable to walk properly. He is very emaciated and the vet found that he'd been shot in the leg and that it is about a week old. This baby lay out in the cold starving with a bullet wound for at least a week. X-rays show there are many bullet fragments that will be impossible to remove and it shattered part of his leg bone. He was immediately taken to the vet and a splint/cast was put on the leg in hopes that it will heal properly. The vet thinks he's young enough that the bone could heal. He will be checked weekly until it's decided whether to amputate the leg or not. Please help us cover the costs of his medical bills and further treatment. This fundraiser doesn't include the cost of amputation as it has not yet been determined that it's necessary. It's beyond my comprehension that someone could shoot a young, starving dog and people like that should be stopped. This precious soul is approximate 6-8 months old and even though he's had a very rough start in life, he has such a sweet temperament and is starving for love. He's getting plenty of that now and is eating it up. He even learned to sit on command this morning. He will need a good, loving home once his treatments are done. If you're interested, you can email for an adoption application [email protected]
In the meantime, we need to raise the funds to help this precious dog.
Let's give Charlie a Merry Christmas!
