This is my puppy boy, Baby. He is the sweetest little guy you could ever meet, anyone who has met him will tell you that same thing, he just radiates love instantly for anyone and everyone he encounters. He is also a very active and energetic boy, as most 1 year old puppies are. Baby just so happens to be a very clumsy puppy as well, unfortunately. On December 13th, we went out to go play his favorite game: night time fetch with his glow in the dark ball that he absolutely loves. As we make our way to the field it is typical for him to be so excited to play that he is jumping and spinning in circles with anticipation, barely able to control himself. So with the first toss of the ball he took off full force, instantly resulting in a horrible freak accident. We have two randomly placed concrete slabs in our yard, which are raised a few inches higher than ground level. Baby's only focus was his ball, he didn't even see the slab until it was too late. He tripped on the raised edge, while at full speed, and was sent crashing into the concrete face first. The force of the impact was enough to instantly fracture 6 of his teeth, which punctured his lips all the way through. Xrays would soon reveal our worst fears to be true; he had sustained a fractured jaw along with the 6 broken teeth and the punctured lips. So here we are, two long vet visits, four bottles of puppy prescriptions, one jaw surgery, six extracted teeth, and one poor puppy boy with a mouth full of stitches in the place of where his teeth used to be.
This year has been one big mess, with financial hardships being the new standard for just about everyone currently, especially due to the pandemic. Anything helps even if it isn't in the form of currency, kindness alone means everything to me and my gratitude I have for any form of support that we are given in this time of need would truly go beyond words. Any support I can get wether it is an actual donation through this gofundme or just simply keeping us in your prayers and wishing us well, I appreciate more than I could ever express.
This is baby's mouth before the extractions, teeth were knocked loose or snapped in half, all while his jaw has fractured into small pieces that were removed along with his teeth during his surgery.
my sweet little Baby post-surgey, staying strong but definitely hurting.
One of the three puncture holes on his lip. This is Baby's new jacked up smile, thanks to half of his teeth on that side of his face being pulled out.
My poor little sweetheart has a long and painful recovery ahead of him.
I took this video (it should be a link) when we got home after surgery, he was hurting so badly, its heartbreaking to know that hes in so much pain but at least I know that he is a strong little boy, who will make it through this and despite everything he has stayed positive the whole way through it all.
