For Louie

Louie needs your help!

Louie is a 7 year old Yorkie, who has been more of a family member, than a dog. He is extremely playful, loving, and will basically be your shadow wherever you go. Louie is a lover of traveling and has been lucky to travel from Florida, to California and so many other places, with no problems whatsoever on the plane. He loves it and will never fail to put a smile on your face.

Since about 2 weeks ago, Louie has been vomiting, lost about 5 pounds in total, and is currently refusing to eat (a total of 5 days now). He has been admitted to North Shore Animal League, undergoing extensive testing to locate what the problem is. Unfortunately, Louie does not have medical insurance and his medical bills continue to rise, as they are currently going to continue testing to figure out what’s going on.

I am a single dog owner, and hate to ask for donations, but I am at a loss for other options. Louie is a young, healthy dog who has been my companion during the toughest times of my life. Any donation would truly help, no matter what amount, and will go *strictly and completely* towards Louie’s medical bills.

We are so appreciative for any donation to hopefully figure out what’s wrong, and get our Louie man to feel better and return home. Thank you so much for reading Louie’s story and for helping at this very difficult time.
