On the evening of August 7, 2018, my sister, Callie, was walking her dog Charlie when out of nowhere a dog came flying out from a backyard and attacked him. Charlie was on a leash and harness and, at the time, giving kisses to 2 of the neighborhood kids. This other dog was not on a leash and there was no owner in sight.
As Callie tried her best to pull Charlie from harms way, the other dog was able to grab him by the stomach and rip him open. Other neighbors heard the commotion and came to my Callie's and Charlie's defense. Charlie was rushed to the ER where he was then sent straight into surgery. Charlie spent the next 2 nights under careful observation.
He is now home and resting comfortably. Unfortunately my sister can't say the same. The vet costs have hit her hard. She has confronted the neighbor who own the "attack" dog but they have refused to pay for the damage their dog caused. Neighbors say that this is not the first time this dog has done something like this. Local Animal Control has been called and a report has been made.
Callie's life revolves around Charlie. She would and will do anything for him. Earlier this year she lost her other dog suddenly from an undiscovered heart defect. Charlie is the only baby she has left and she couldn't imagine life without him.
Callie is a 2nd grade teacher in Nashville, TN. All funds raised will go to cover the emergency vet bills for Charlie's care. Any little bit helps and not only my sister, but my entire family thank you. Charlie is not just my sister's dog. He is part of our family and we love him so much!
