Please help us save this sweet doodle puppy who was hit by a car and left for dead on the side of the highway. I was driving down the US 78 Stone Mountain freeway when out of the corner of my eye I see a small furry blonde dog laying listless on the side of the road unable to move. I knew that something was seriously wrong so I immediately pulled over. He was alive, in severe pain, and it was clear his back, pelvis, and legs were badly injured as he could not stand or walk; he didn't cry or make a sound.
Another driver pulled over and called 911. Police arrived shortly. I begged the officer not to call animal control as I knew they would euthanize him as he was so badly broken. I said I would take full responsibility for the dog and ensure it gets good care. She agreed to let me help him. A quilt was pulled out of the back of her car and we wrapped the dog. The police gave me her leather gloves in case I got bit trying to pick him up (the dog was in shock and didn't even flinch when we lifted him) and we scooped him up and placed him in the back of my car. I swear this sweet little puppy knew he was being rescued and believe he knew in that moment everything would be alright. I proceeded to rush him straight to the Village Vets Animal Hospital in Decatur, GA.
He wasn't chipped or tagged so we've named him Mutt Muffin. We are not sure of the breed but the vet is certain he's an "oodle" puppy of some kind - either a schnoodle, labradoodle, or golden doodle. He's absolutely adorable.
He's currently at an animal hospital where they are keeping him sedated on pain meds, antibiotics and fluids. His x-rays show a broken femur, fractured pelvis, fractured tibia, fractured back, and fractured femoral head. He can't walk but is alive and stable at the vet. The vet said that his broken parts need to be put back together by a surgeon but that he will walk again. The downside is it will cost over $10,000.
With your help he will live and go on to have a good life. PLEASE donate ANY amount you can give. He's adorable and definitely worth saving and I need your help! $50, $100 or whatever you can give! Thank you so much for your support and generous donation!
