Macho's Fight

Donation protected
Macho is an 8 month old puppy, who has already been through so much in his short life. He was rescued from being used as bait for dog fighting when only a few weeks old, just to have to turn around and fight for his life, again. His owners' neighbor did not like Macho or his sister Baiah, and tried poisoning them. Baiah was unharmed, but Macho was not so fortunate. Despite knowing of the posioning, his owners made no attempt to seek medical attention, and Macho sat, deteriorating, for over a week, before fate brought us to meeting. My large heart knew that he wouldn't survive, and even with a full home ( I have two furry children of my own and also a foster), I brought him, and his sister, home with us.
Macho collapsed Friday evening and was rushed to the vet's office. (Note, I had only met and brought them home early that afternoon.) After hours of tests, it seemed that we had been too late, as his prognosis was not good. The vet decided to keep him overnight, in hope of any sign of improvement in the morning. Unfortunately, morning came, and poor Macho was just about the same as the night before. We had to make the hard decision of ending his suffering.
As fate would have it again, I got held up on the way to the vet's office and didn't arrive until 3 hours later. I went back to hold Macho and comfort him and tell him how sorry I was. I got the shock of my life to see a standing, wagging, wobbly puppy wanting love! If I had not gotten held up, I would've made the wrong decision. Macho's will to survive and overcome is stronger than any dog or puppy that I have ever met. He is not out of the clear yet, as he sat untreated from the poison for over a week. Macho (and I) need help to cover his medical bills from the four day stay at the vet (he is currently there and can not come home until at least Tuesday). This guy has proven that it is not his time to go, and deserves to his fighting chance. We appreciate any and all help, no matter how much. ♡
