Please Help Sargent Recover

Two years ago, Eric was blessed with his best friend, Sargent. Meeting Sargent was by total accident but in retrospect, it was destiny. My father was on his way to work in Miami when he saw a lonely German Shepard puppy chained outside in the blistering heat. My father pulled over and inquired about why the dog was chained outside in the Florida summer sun. The family didn't want him. Sargent's owner had been deployed to the military and left him. Sargent was alone and needed love. My father told the family we would take him and find him the perfect home. When my boyfriend, Eric, heard... he was beyond elated. He had dreamed of having a German Shepard his entire life and here was Sargent, needing a good home. Eric and Sargent were perfect together. They both love outdoors, adventure, and playing. Eric and Sargent do everything together, from waking up at 4:30AM before school to run 3 miles to canoeing in parks.  Eric saved Sargent but really, Sargent saved Eric and his family. He has done nothing but give them love and affection in only the way a dog could. He snuggles them and gives them joy and laughter. Sargent is Eric's best friend from the very beginning. This morning, Sargent was outside and scared by a lawnmower. He fled into the road and was hit by a speeding truck which left him in critical condition. His spine was fractured and his lungs collapsed. Eric and his family were distraught. The doctors say the only way to save Sargent is to proceed with a surgery that his family really cannot afford but they love Sargent, a member of their family. Eric's dad works two jobs and Eric works whenever he is not in school. The surgery is VERY costly but I am sure with people's help we can deliver Sargent back home to the love of his family. Time is running out and surgery must be done immediately. Eric is completely heartbroken. Please keep Sargent in your prayers!
