My dog Moose Tracks needs your help in the fight for his life! Help give this precious puppy a chance!

A few weeks ago, my little 10 pound sweetheart, a wire-hair Daschund named Moose Tracks, was viciously attacked by 3 very large dogs. My uncle stopped them just in time to keep them from killing him, but the damage had already been done.

We rushed my little boy to a specialist and he has been under veterinary care for a couple of weeks now. Originally we were told that the veterinary costs would not exceed $1500. However, a few days ago, my aunt went to the office, at which time she was told it had risen to over $2100. We were barely able to afford the previous amount, so this stunned us. Amazingly, we were able to pull together around $1700 but that is just not enough. Now, the total has somehow risen to approximately $6500, and he still needs another small series of surgeries and treatments to repair his muscle, relocate skin, and ensure the infection is out of his bloodstream. It is probably going to end up costing over $9000 after all is said and done, and he will still need extensive home care and rehabilitation for up to 2-3 months. We are overwhelmed but will not give up!

Please, if you have the means, help us out! My dog is only about a year old and I love him so much! I have been selling all sorts of things but I am a college student and don't have many valuables. Please help! Moose Tracks is a fighter and deserves the chance to live!

***UPDATE 07/27/2011***
He received two more surgeries - skin grafts from his bottom to his back - and both were successful! He may need one more, but overall he seems to be doing much better. He is gaining energy and definitely seems to be perking up! We were able to raise about $650 outside of this site, thanks to family and friends, but we still have a lot of medical bills ahead of us. Please, if you can spare any money, it would help a lot! We have already had to spend most of our money we had set aside for bills and we have just been opening credit cars and borrowing from people left and right. We really do need the help! It's not a scam, this is for real, and we cannot refuse proper treatment for our little boy! I'm sorry I don't really have any photos displayed... the photos we have are far too gruesome to post, trust me. We do need your help, and so does Moose. Please, if you can, help us out.
