Help fix Terri's Lip and Teeth

------------------------------------------------------------------  UPDATE  ----------------------------------------------------------------------

Hello Everyone!

Good news, Terri did great in her surgery and is back on her favorite couch recovering!

She was under for a few hours, the lip was fixed and a few teeth were pulled out of her mouth.

Turns out the back two dead teeth that the vet initially found were a lot worse than we previously thought.

As the Surgeon removed them, he saw that they were infected and all the tissue surrounding the teeth was completely dead.

He thinks that if we didn't find them when we did, it could have killed her in a few years down the line...

Luckily we decided to do the lip surgery, or we never would have found those teeth!!

There were also some broken teeth and roots, embedded behind her gums in the front of her mouth that were most likely causing her even more pain and discomfort than she was already experiencing.

She seemed happier than she's ever been just a few days after surgery!

Thanks again to everyone who supported Terri through all of this.  We raised almost exactly enough money, with the cost of the pre-op and midication so everything worked out perfectly!!

Please check back for more recovery pictures when Terri is FULLY RECOVERED next week Wednesday!!

Thank you all so much for your very generous donations to Terri!!

The response to this was absolutely amazing and I can't even describe how happy I am.

Terri's Surgery has been scheduled for the end of October, she will be there for the day, and have a 2-week recovery time.

I will be sure to post pictures and updates letting everyone know how she's doing.

Since the fundraiser did a little better than expected, I have opened a Terri Account so all extra funds will be spent on Terri and Terri related accessories!!!  (Food, Toys, Grooming, Day Care, Etc. Etc.)

Thank you again everyone for being so kind to such a great creature most of you have never even met!

Meet Terri, 

She's a ~2 year old Terrier X Lab mix who loves to cuddle, watch TV, ride in the car, and sleep as much as she can.  She was Rescued by Big Dog Rescue in West Palm Beach, FL after being there for about six months.  Terri is a fantastic dog with a great personality, but unfortunately she went unnoticed due to her lip.  

Terri has had a rough life up until now, and we're not 100% sure what actually happened to her.  From the looks of it she was obviously abused in many ways, including possible dog fighting, or (by her demeanor) a bait dog.  She has countless scars around her head, neck, and snout.  On top of missing / broken teeth, and the worst of all, her lip that has been ripped away from her jaw, exposing her entire chin and front of her mouth.  All of this on top of living outside almost her whole life with her puppies, it's amazing she's as happy as she is.  

She has a lot of trouble eating properly with her lip, and there are a few dead / broken teeth that the vet found in the back of her head that appear to be bothering her (she has trouble chewing on her toys).  I also feel like she knows about the lip and is very self conscious about it.  I just want her to be the happy, healthy puppy she was meant to be!

She loves dogs and people more than anything, and with your help we can help Terri be the happy, healthy dog she was meant to be!
