The Golden Retriever in the pictures above is my best friend and my baby. Her name is Gloria, she is three years of age, and the sweetest fur baby in the world.
The last three awful pictures posted is why she needs as much help and prayers as we can possibly get.
Gloria has been in my life since she was 5 weeks old. The lord decided that i could never birth my own children, but blessed me with a fur baby. She is my baby and my best friend.
Friday August 21rst started as a typical day at first, between work and back home, but every changed when we went on our daily walk around our neighborhood. A stray black and tan dog that was more muscular than Gloria but not as tall had appeared behind us, growling and charged us, attacking Gloria by her neck and eye area. As quick as it started, and realizing the situation i tried to hitt, kick, push and pull this attacking dog off of her. I was bit four times in my right hand and left knee struggling to help her.
The dog had forced her to the ground for three to five minutes before backing off and running away as quickly as it appeared. I immediately took my Gloria to Blount county veterinary hospital about seven minutes from our home.
We hadn't made it in the door with me carrying my best friend before they recognized she needed emergency help. After ten to twelve stitches in several different areas, and four staples above her head, they requested emergency x-rays for internal damage. Glorias breathing was shallow and slowing, the vet performed emergency surgery for a paralyzed larynx to save her life.
After the surgery as well as multiple internal x-rays, My savings, Checking accounts, as well as my cars title pawn loan fund has rapidly been used now pausing critical veterinary assistance.
Glorias antibiotic, muscle pain relief, and infection protection prescriptions, left front leg as well as right back legs where urgently recommended for stitch brace protection from restricting most of her movement due to needed tissue healing. I have spent down to my last penny and will continue to do but time is a factor for her recovery.
ANY FINANCIAL HELP IS A BLESSING
ANY PRAYERS FOR US ARE A BLESSING
ANY SHARING OF OUR STORY IS GREATLY APPRECIATED.
