NCSU Live Mascot Tuffy II

Tuffy II is the popular live mascot of your North Carolina State football team.  He has been on the sideline during games and loves having pictures taken with countless fans at various events. 

But Tuffy II has been recently diagnosed with Canine dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM), a disease of the heart that results in a decreased ability of the heart to pump blood, resulting in an enlarged heart.

Luckily NC State has one of the best Vet schools in the country.  In fact, they already saved Tuffy II's life once when he was diagnosed with a rare parasite when he was just a puppy.  Now, they have treated him in their ICU and he is much better thanks to the amazing cardiology team!

Recovering his health has been hard on Tuffy II and his family but like a true Wolfpacker, he refuses to give up.

Tuffy II can't wait to be on the sidelines again, representing the NC State Wolfpack and greeting all the fans with a friendly nudge and a grin!

The cost of his treatment is financially difficult for his family, but there is nothing they wouldn't do to help him.  Anything you can spare to help save this beautiful boy will be very much appreciated.

Thank you!  And Go Pack!52069794_1603387163595047_r.jpeg
