Hi Guys and hopefully fellow pug lovers.
Before I start I just want to say This is something that I never wanted to consider but due to my own stupidity and not preparing for the worse I am in
this situation.... a situation that I’m
embarrassed about being in.
Growing up as a non dog lover, I was
terrified of dogs TBH and a pug obsession (after meeting a friends pug) led me to
Purchase my first ever little fur baby without a second thought or even
properly researching the breed. I can’t say I regret this as I may have not went ahead and even got my little diva. The last 8 years of owning Snooki have brought nothing but joy and taught me so much in compassion and made me a much better person I actually find it hard to even imagine what life was like without her in it. Like many I became thetypical dog dad always banging on about his dog truly a mans best friend. So this Is what makes it even harder as I feel I’ve her down in life right now I’m not being prepared for what many pugs seem to Develop issue with.
After 8 years of being pretty healthy just the usual vet trips although nearly lost. her eye (hyper puppy stage). The last few
months have this has all changed.. after her 1 millionth visit for her ears £70 a time I know you fellow pug owners must feel my pain I asked for a scan as her leg had started giving way and she was becoming unable to get up the stairs, jump on the sofa even struggling to get back in the main door. I have been told she needs to see a specialist as there appears to be a disc missing between her spine and leg. Obviously my answer was yes yes yes obvs let’s get this fixed ....then I was hit with it will cost anywhere£3000-£6000 maybe more. No worries my insurance will cover that ... nope again inexperienced dog owner! Turns out my insurance only covers £3k leaving a large sum of money left to be
paid. The specialist won’t even look at her without a payment of roughly £1000 to then determine the next steps. As the weeks have went on she has deteriorated rapidly, her daily walks haveturned non existent barley even managesto walk around the house, falls over and is now pooping herself when she falls over struggling to hold her bowl. Should this be something I was prepared for yes, do I work yes but with the virus I’m on minimum hours with reduced salary and at this rate it will be next year before I have enough savings to even possibly cover the remainder of the costs.
I’m looking for any donations at all in helping her, it’s killing me watching her being a shadow of her former self. All in a matter of months. I have let her
down massively but please don’t let this affect her, I’m calling for all Pug / Dog lovers to help me and more importantly her in any way possible. I need to raise as much as possible to get her the help needed ASAP!
That’s my story and my plea for some kind of help!!
