He was leashed that fateful afternoon to our porch while I went to grab the lawn mower to do some yard work out in the sun. Less than a minute later a bully breed dog grabbed him by the neck. Hearing his cries i ran to him as fast as possible. This white dog had his head in his mouth and was shaking vigorously. Terrified that my 9lb dog was surely dead I fought to get my puppy's head out of the dogs strong jaws. We both rushed to the hospital dripping with blood. Larry was limp and crying, the flesh from my finger ripped from the bone.

Thankfully Larry has survived but now we must make a terrible choice. Pay $5,500 and amputate the leg, leaving him without a good quality of  OR pay $8,552 to save his  leg. The vet is confident he will regain full mobility. 

Only fate can decide at this point. We must tell the surgeon our decision in the morning. SAVE LARRY'S LEG!!

Larry is home and doing well. He's our full time boy though with all his medications and bringing him to potty and things. He wants to be active but he has to stay in his kennel and heal for 6 to 8 weeks. Although we don't get much sleep anymore, I think he's happy to be home❤️

Thank you to everyone who has supported our campaign and followed Larry's journey so far. We couldn't have done it without you!

Our little fighter. Larry's surgery went well. But, the little tiny bones in his legs are so small there is a risk of re-breaking. His appetite is coming back with full force and he's even giving kisses for the first time since the accident. For the upcoming weeks he is on strict Kennel rest. Tomorrow we get to take our angel home!!

My family decided that even though we didn't make our goal, with all the outpouring of support we want our boy to keep his leg. Larry was wheeled into the Operating Room at around 3pm this afternoon. It's now 8:30pm and he's still in surgery. We are still accepting donations, especially since the surgery time has almost doubled and we don't know how that will affect the final cost. The surgery was originally quoted at 3 hours. We are waiting impatiently to see Larry awake and safe. Thank you everyone who has donated so far and supported us, we are overwhelmed with gratitude. Tune into Kiro News radio tomorrow for the story.
