On Tuesday, July 23 Champ was attacked in our home by a dog that we were fostering. He was injured almost fatally, but he has managed to pull through. What we are dealing with now is an 11 inch wound that needs to be closed with a skin flap from his back/shoulder area. A skin flap is a little different than a skin graft in that the tissue being used is left partially connected to the area it is taken from so that there is continued blood flow. This is the only chance at closing a wound of this size.
Champ has been through so much already and has come so far. As of today, Aug. 1st his doctors say he is doing really well and the tissue is looking much more viable. He’s eating and moving around better. This makes it even harder to stop trying. He seems to be telling me that he wants to live. I have to make one final push to try and raise the money needed for his surgery. I have already maxed out Care Credit and spent every penny I have. Please if you can spare a little towards Champ we would be forever grateful.
