$2,137 of $3,100 goal

Zoe is a 6 lb Shih Tzu cross that was rescued in 2013 and adopted by her foster family. On January 1, 2019, Zoe was attacked by an off-leash dog near 104 Avenue and 93 Street in Edmonton, AB. Her hip was popped out of the socket, as was one of her eyes, and she required emergency surgery to save her life. She is currently being monitored at Guardian Vet in Edmonton in case of complications. She is still not out of the woods yet, as she likely has internal bleeding, and the doctors are worried about infection. The owner of the attacking dog has said she is not able to help with the vet bills, which have already reached nearly $3,000.

Owner's Words:
My dog Zoe (who is 6lbs) was brutally attacked yesterday afternoon by a large dog who was off leash in an empty poorly gated lot behind my apartment building. People in my neighbourhood have been using this empty lot as an off leash dog park. She’s currently at Guardian Vet fighting for her life. She’s not out of the woods yet and I’m terrified. Guardian Vet is monitoring her in case of complications.

The dog broke through the fence and immediately attacked her. Zoe was rushed into emergency surgery. Her eye came out of the socket and the dog bit her multiple times, through her arteries and groin area into her hip bone that was removed from its socket. I tried my best to get this dog off and away from her and even fell to the ground and held it down while its owner watched and yelled at ME to get MY dog.

Zoe’s vet bill is near $3000 and climbing. The owner of this dog has told me and the bylaw that she “doesn’t have a job” and can’t afford to pay the bills for what her dog has done. She’s made no indication that she’s sorry, and all day has continued to bring her dog off leash to the empty lot behind my apartment.

Good news! Zoe is still making progress! She has been eating small amounts of food and drinking. She is sleeping lots, but is still getting up to walk around, wag her tail and greet all her visitors. She is going for a recheck tomorrow so they can check on her bruising. We have updated the amount of the GoFundMe to $3100, as that will cover her bill and the fees that GoFundMe charges. Thanks again to everyone who has donated!

From Zoe’s owner:
Zoe’s doing better today, they’ve decided to let her come home for a food trial to see if she’ll eat at home. Still iffy on the vision and walking even though she’s trying to stand and get some weight on her leg. She’s on about 8 prescriptions for pain and antibiotics so fingers crossed everything continues to take well and the recovery is speedy. If she doesn’t eat or drink she has to come back, not sure for how long but they feel comfortable letting her go home to see if changing the environment will help.

Update from Zoe’s mom!

“I called in and got some good news. She’s starting to feel better and is more alert. She’s still not eating and drinking so that’s the biggest set back.

But she’s responding well during her exams and she’s starting to give kisses and wants to be held.
Her nurse said that with the pain checks she’s not flinching as much and seems to be just a little more there than she has been.”
