On November 10th 2014, around 1:50 pm I received a call from my daughter to tell me she had been walking our dogs, Vinny and Lou, two white German Shepard's. She told me the dogs had gotten away from her and bolted into the woods and that she was looking for them.

At 2 pm I received another a text message to say they were back! At 2:08 pm I received a frantic call saying Vinny had been shot!

In a frenzy my husband and I rushed home and got him to his vet at Small Animal Clinic in Ellsworth Maine! 

After bloodwork, xrays, and medication to get his out of shock the vet told us he was lucky and no vital organs had been hit. It appeared that the bullet was lodged in his muscle! It was safe where it was! 

He progressed positively throughout that night and the next day! I woke this morning to him struggling for air! I rushed him back to the vet and it was found that the bullet nicked the pleura and his chest cavity is filling with air causing the lung to collapse!

As I type this Vinny is having a tube placed to allow the air to escape. If this does not work he will undergo surgery to have a more permanent tube placed until the pleura can mend and his lung function can return to normal! 

We have already spent $600 in care for our dog who was shot by a mean nasty neighbor!! We are pressing charges for animal cruelty and plan to take him to small claims court for the vet charges, but that takes time!!

Please won't you consider helping Vinny? Any monies raised in excessss of his vet bills will be donated to a nonprofit organization in my area!!!

Please help me give Vinny the care he needs and deserves!!! Thank you!
