While driving to work on New Year's Day I spotted a car parked on the side of the road, in a very bad neighborhood, with it's door open. The driver was pushing out this little dog and the poor guy kept trying to squeeze himself back into the car.  Even after the door was closed and the car was slowly pulling away, the dog kept trying to get back in the car. After the car left I went over and opened my door and the dog  crawled over to me on his belly and started trying to get in my car. At this point it was clear his jaw was freshly broken and hanging off of his face. 

I I brought him to LVS where they gave him morphine, antibiotics, and anti inflammatories.  He is awaiting surgery but it's going to cost a fortune. 
 
This is little guy needs your help! 
He is less than a year old, approximately 20 lbs,  tan terrier mix that I've been calling Nerak. 
He has met my cats, my dogs, and several people and been incredibally sweet and friendly. 

Even though his jaw is broken and causing him pain he insists on being affectionate and giving me (and everyone else)  kisses and nibbles- he is such a lover that this is more important to him than the pain!

Its hard to get a good photo but this injury is truly horrific. His jaw literally flaps just from the force of him panting. Please, if you can't donate, share this! Every little thing helps.

Thank you

Nerak is super thrilled to be out of the hospital! I will be fostering him until he has healed and then he will be up for adoption. Please contact 100+ Abandoned Dogs of Everglades Florida for more information. I will continue to post updates as he heals

Wow! We have reached our goal of $7000 to pay for Nerak's surgery and other intial veterinary needs to get him back to health. This is incredible, thank everyone so much for caring and helping. I will continue to post updates about Nerak's progress and leave donations open because there will be ongoing costs to care for him and also to raise more money to help the many other dogs currently in the care of the rescue.
Please visit their site, http://100plusabandoneddogsofevergladesflorida.org , if you are interested in adding a new member to your family or if you're interested in continuing to contribute to the organization directly. Even if you can't continue to contribute financially, help is always needed caring for the dogs and bringing them out to help them find homes! Nerak was very lucky I was there to see and tell his story, but don't forget about the many other dogs whose stories we don't know but are still tragically waiting for their furever home.
Again, thank you, everyone and I will post more when I get Neruk home tomorrow.

Visiting Narek on his last day at the hospital! He's going to go back to my house so we can foster him while he heals tomorrow. He is clearly already feeling much better and loved going on a walk.

Thanks for the updates Joshua, you are Nerak's angel. It warms my heart to see how so many have come together to help him. My prayer is that he has a healthy speedy recovery and find a forever home where he knows unconditional love for the rest of his life. What is that white stuff on the bottom of his mouth, is it like a dental wax?

There has been plenty of money donated, has the surgery occurred yet? It must be incredibly difficult for him to drink and eat, etc. Please keep us posted XOX

Did you happen to give the Police a description of the car and the abuser? You are his Guardian Angel. I think all people including Animal Control in other states who shoot kittens and gas innocent animals in animal shelters in 31 states should all be punished and made to live in a dog kennel and eat dog food.

It's so incredible that you've done this for this animal. I just finished a campaign of my own to help a friend pay for her rescue cat's surgery, so I know from that that every little bit helps. I'm glad to do even a little something for this sweet boy. Sending love and healing wishes to him.
