They must have wandered for weeks in that predator infested area. They were half-starved, banged-up, exhausted and filthy! Both dogs had lost approx. 20% of their body weight! It is truly amazing that they survived at all!
They were discovered by their rescuer Lorraine; first she managed to catch Carmine, and then heard from neighbors that there was another dog, with a weird leg.
People seemed reluctant to help Mr. Guy due to his unusual deformity.
Lorraine asked neighbors to please catch him when they saw him next, and so a day or two later, when a neighbor knocked on her door, Lorraine took in Mr. Guy.
Despite his deformity, Mr. Guy is the sweetest most outgoing dog! He doesn’t let his deformity stop him, it certainly does slows him down and makes things difficult for him, but he is a real trooper and just muddles through!
It’s obvious though that he would function so much better without his gimpy leg slowing him down.
Lorraine contacted us to try and help her find homes for the two dogs. She already has a house-full but has generously agreed to foster them while homes are being found.
After Lorraine contacted us, we contacted Tia Rosetti-Mills from PNW Animal Welfare Project (who has quite a bit of experience working with handicapped animals. ) She immediately jumped in to help!
Within minutes she contacted Dr. Michelle Ward; a wonderful and compassionate veterinarian, who has a mobile clinic based out of Priest Lake, and who agreed to do the surgery for Mr. Guy.
The surgery will cost approximately $700.00.
This is where we need YOUR help! Please give what you can, every little bit helps! Help us to help this amazing little dog so he can begin to live a normal and happy life!
