Hi, 

My name is Alberta from the Lake City Humane Society but, my foster dad calls me Gatorbait because that's how I lost part of my leg.

I don't know why my family didn't like me but they dumped me off near a lake and after a while all I wanted was something to eat and drink and, well....there was an alligator in it!

My foster dad says I must be a tough puppy to fight off an alligator and only lose a part of a leg. But, he also says I have to be even tougher because they have to remove the rest of the leg so I won't have complications in the future.

I don't feel so tough. My stump hurts a lot....especially when I go outside and try to play with the other dogs and it hits the ground.

It even hurts when I'm moving around the house or going out to use the bathroom. But, my foster mom bought me a nice soft bed and the shelter provides me with pain medication to make me feel better. The vet says once the leg is completely gone I'll be able to run and play without hurting myself!

The trouble is the operation is very expensive...$800-$1000 they say...so I'm having to ask for help.

I don't like asking for help especially since I don't know you but, I'd really love it if you'd help me out so I can get all these doctor visits behind me and get on with being a puppy! Then maybe someone will give me a furever home!

If you can help me out...even just a little...I promise to stay away from the alligators!!
