YESTERDAY afternoon there was a commotion at our front gate. My teenage daughter investigated and found a young, starved, dehydrated Pointer collapsed outside the gate. She carried him in and we gave him water but there was clearly something very wrong with his hind area - he was unable to stand on all 4 legs, had wounds on his legs and scrotum, and a large, painful swelling on his thigh.
After cleaning his wounds and applying ice to his thigh we took him to our surgeon. Xray showed 2 breaks to his pelvis and a shattered femur. He was placed on a drip to re hydrate him and kept in the hospital.
We have named this poor dog HERBIE. We believe that he was left behind last week by hunters training their dogs on the hills around our farm, and he must have been hit by a truck at some point and staggered to our gates in search of water. He goes into surgery tomorrow to have his breaks secured and his femur head removed. The surgery will cost Euro 600!
I need help with the cost of this treatment - HERBIE must have immediate surgery but I do not have E600 available to cover his costs. I am asking for donations as this is the only way to meet the expense - please will you support HERBIE?
After surgery HERBIE will come back to us to receive rehabilitation, and once he has fully recovered we hope we can find him a loving home outside of Cyprus. Please help us give him the life he deserves!
