Sweet Jensen is a 4 year old pit bull who has an incredible will to live but he desperately needs our help right now. He has fought very hard to live and now we must fight for him to get him the surgery he needs. He was hit by a fire truck over a week ago & needs surgery ASAP to fix multiple injuries he sustained. He has been in excrutiating pain and despite all of his pain, his tail has never stopped wagging and he is the sweetest dog you will ever meet. After he was hit, the firefighters immediately brought him to a local vet where he was looked over before being sent over to the local high kill shelter. He sat in the shelter in pain for over a week before being rescued yesterday when his time was up. I am thankful to the guys at the shelter for giving him pain meds as the vet said today that he has been in horrendous pain with the injuries that he has. When he was found, Jensen was wearing a 3 inch wide collar that had not one, but two padlocks on it!! He is also very thin and has fly strike on his ears. It's pretty safe to assume that Jensen hasn't had a very good life up until now and he definitely deserves one!! He is so appreciative of any ounce of attention he is given.

Jensen has a broken jaw and a pretty serious infection in his mouth. He has numerous teeth that are fractured and broken and will need to be removed. He also has a broken pelvis, hip and femur. In addition to his orthopedic injuries, Jensen is heartworm positive and will need to go through heartworm treatment as soon as he has recovered from his surgery. He also will be neutered. The vet is going to wire his broken jaw and perform an FHO on his hip to try to prevent his leg from having to be amputated. With this surgery, he should be able to maintain at least some use of his leg and won't be in pain.

Jensen has an adopter who will give him a wonderful forever home once he is fixed up. She is a vet tech and had a dog that was much like Jensen. He was found in terrible shape, beat up, unable to move & tied to a trash can - he required a lot of rehab when she first adopted him. He died a couple years ago and Jensen reminds her of her boy. Please help us raise the money to get Jensen the surgery that he needs so that he can live the rest of his life spoiled rotten (like he should be). The staff at the vet hospital where he is currently, fell in love with this boy right away!!

We don't know exactly what the cost of Jensen's bill is going to be but they are estimating that it will be around $1,000 and possibly more if you include the heartworm treatment. Please please help us to get Jensen the help he needs. Every dollar helps!! If you would prefer to call in a donation to the vet directly, that would be wonderful!! He is at Chocowinity Vet Hospital and you can call them at (252) 946-9000 and ask them to put it toward Jensen's surgery. Thank you!!
