Acral Lick Granuloma affected puppy needs your help!

Duke is our 3 year old hyper bundle of joy! He was adopted about 6 months ago from a high kill shelter in Georgia, and was previously used in dog fighting. He's the sweetest dog you'd ever meet now, and was adjusting wonderfully to our home. He even likes cats now! He's the center of our family, and puts the smile on my face in the morning.

Acral Lick Granuloma is basically just a hotspot that occurs on dogs paws when they continue licking to the point of open sores. Unfortunately, that was just the beginning for our puppy Duke. He started the licking of his front paws shortly after we got him, due to anxiety issues, and we consulted our vet, who said it's not too abmormal, and advised us to use some bitter apple spray. We tried this and it seemed to just continue. As of today, he has 17 granulomas all over his body, and most of them are severly infected. The vet has been treating them as best he can, but it's a constant battle, because he just keeps licking. The E-Collars don't work because he can still reach most spots! The infections, if they continue, will eventually become blood infections and it will kill him.

I work as much as I can to save money but it just isn't enough. Our vet recently told us there is a dog skin specialist who could give him hormone treatments that would most likely stop the licking and allow us to treat the spots before the blood infections get bad. The treatment will cost about 650.00 though, and I just have no way to help him :(

This dog has had such a rough beginning to life, he's only three! I'm asking for your help to get him the treatment he needs so we can make sure he has a great, healthy fun filled rest of his life. No puppy deserves the beginning he's had! =(
