Hero dog saves me from mountain lion attack

Donation protected
Hi my name is Erin, and i am fundraising for my Belgian Malinois vet bills after she saved my life.

on May 16th, at the white bar picnic area i was attacked by a mountain lion. It swiped at me, scratching my left shoulder. I yelled out for help from my dog Eva. She was only a few yards ahead of me and attacked the lion. They battled for a few moments until i heard her cry. The cat had her by the left side of her head. For the next several minutes i tried everything i could to free her. Eventually i ran to my vehicle for a weapon and flagged down assistance from a kind woman named Sharon. Together we beat at the cat while yelling until my dog was let go.

the trip to the vet was about an hour, and midway through Eva began convulsing for several minutes at a time. I didn’t think she’d make it every time it started up. Fortunately she pulled through and received urgent treatment. She is still not out of the woods, she is heavily sedated until we can be sure the pressure in her head is reduced. She has 2 fractures to her skull, a puncture into the sinus cavity and severe swelling around her left eye, which is impeding her vision. The vet is optimistic, she is 2.5 years old and is otherwise in top shape.

My dog is my hero and i owe her my life.
