As most of you know I am a dog trainer working
at a local Petco store. In my line of work, I meet a ton of really interesting,
caring and giving people. But sometimes the most giving need a little getting in
One of the amazing people I have met and befriended over
the last 2 years is Kim. She owns 2 dogs, Baylee and Yogi and volunteers for as
a foster for a local rescue (who shall remain nameless and they are total
ass-hats). Recently she had 9 dogs crowding her little house, 7 of which she
nursed back from the brink of death. (One, Nugget had a corncob and 24 inches
removed from his intestines because someone tied him up outside and left
town)... Almost all the puppies have gotten homes and she is down to 5 total in
Anyway, Kim was fostering a puppy (a 35 pound puppy, but a
puppy none the less) who red lined (read: went bat-sh*t crazy) and attacked
Kim's personal dog Baylee. The "puppy" wouldn't let Baylee go and Kim got
physically involved. Both Baylee and Kim ended up with several VERY bad
bite/puncture wounds and both went to the ER for treatment. This happened about
a week and a half ago.
The rescue group is refusing to pay for the
medical bills for Kim or Baylee.
Also, Kim called me today, in tears and told me Yogi
(her other personal dog) went to the vet for a dental cleaning and the idiot vet
tech "forgot" to turn on Yogi's oxygen while he was under anesthesia... For FIVE
minutes. The vet is expecting Yogi to have some brain damage, though the extent
isn't known yet.
I also just want to let you all know Yogi and Baylee
are both A.K.C. Canine Good Citizen graduates and are currently working on
becoming Therapy Dogs.
I know the animal community bands together for
friends, and I am asking everyone if they can visit http://www.youcaring.com/pet-expense...and-kim/240708
and give what you can. Also, if you want to PM me, I can give you an address to
send money, treats, food or toys for this kind-hearted woman.
short for the "TLDR" Crowd... A friend was fostering a dog that bit the heck out
of my friend and her dog. Also, life sucks and her other dog may be brain
damaged due to negligent vet practices. Help!
