During the attack the man saw the dog charging and grabbed his poodle in his arms. The attacking dog bit the poodles owner and then latched on to the poodle. This dog proceeded to drag, shred, and rip the poodle apart. The eye ball was disengaged from the eye socket and left hanging.
Saphiria now needs extensive surgery to close all the punture, open flesh and to remove the badly damaged eye.
This GoFund will help offset surgery, and future medical costs for Saphiria. Please find it in your heart to donate. Thanl you.
For the people saying "I'll donate as soon as you sue the owners of the pit" ... Are you thoughtless?! Do you know how long something like that takes?! And how much that costs?! This poor baby needed the help right away, not in months from now. Anyway... I'm heartbroken to see news reports that the poor baby didn't make it through and passed away. My dog was attacked by a pit October 25th 2015 and suffered a near decapitation. Never saw a penny from the dogs owners, but had a 'you caring' page and raider $10,000 For all his care. If it wasn't for the amazing vets and wonderful people who donated, I woulda lost my baby too! RIP pretty girl!! No more suffering. . . ♡
You need to sue the dog's owner
So sorry to hear bout the lil doggy. Shame I am not "allowed" to say it on the Ocean Gate news "page"
Shanna if that was my dog that did that to another dog i would automatically pay that vet bill right away , i am responsible for it i would pay the vet bill , they wouldn't have to wait
sorry i meant to say why aren't they held responsible
why are the owners of this pitbull responsible for that poodles vet bills and then some , this is not right they should be held responsible, i wouldn't mind donating but the other dogs owner should be responsible for that poor dogs Vet bill , not a go fund me page
Will happily leave a donation once I hear the dog's owners have been sued and police report filed.
This just happened to me on Good Friday in Bogota NJ - please go after the owner to pay these bills. NJ should have better laws ( or laws at all ) it is sick the pathetic amounts of off leash tickets and that they are not strictly enforced. Off leash can turn into a $ 5000.00 - $ 10000.00 vet bill. That is what the state should think about when making these laws. I am so sorry for you and your loved baby. I am still healing from our attack and going to court tomorrow in Little Ferry NJ. The owner to the dog of my attack stepped up and did the right thing by paying for my loved Woo woo's bills. But mentally we all will never get over all of this. Horrific. My prayers are with you and I shared your page on mine.
