This sweet little girl is Abby, a 3 year old dachshund. On 6/26/2017 Abby was viciously attacked by a pit bull right outside her home, in her own yard. We almost lost her, the dog would not let go of her. Abby was rushed to REACH ANIMAL HOSPITAL. She would need tubes placed in the deep wounds. After a few days Abby was still not improving and she would not eat. After being rushed back to REACH we were told she would need surgery to remove the flesh that had died around her wounds. She was taken in for surgery and stayed over night to receive fluids. The bandages after surgery needed to be changed by a vet every two days after because they required being sewn into Abby's skin. Tomorrow morning our baby goes back into surgery to have one of the holes closed and hopefully she can begin to heal. As you can imagine, the vet bills are still growing, at this point we are looking at a little over $2000. My family no longer feels safe in a neighborhood they have lived in for over 40 years. The pit bull was placed under quarantine for 10 days but will soon be free again to roam the neighborhood killing more defenseless animals as Abby was not the first victim. There are also kids in the area that could be in danger. We are desperately needing help with Abby's medical bills. Any size donation would be amazing. If you cant help we understand, please just share and say a prayer for our Abby that her pain eases. If you have any questions for Abby's vet the address and number will be below. If you would like to donate directly please contact Abby's mom Judy Duncan or myself.
