On Saturday 7/6/13 my family received a phone call that Tundra, one of our Siberian Huskies had been shot, by some heartless excuse for a neighbor.

We were out of town for the weekend and had a neighbor watching both our Huskies, Tundra and Dakota. Tundra is only a year old, full of energy and a very loving member of our family, but somehow she managed to jump our fence and escape our 5 acre yard.

She was shot with a shotgun, by a heartless, bitter old man for "trespassing" for all of two minutes on his property a short distance away, she was literally out for less than 3 minutes and the person watching her was calling for her when he heard the gunshot.

The birdshot went into her right back leg, all across her torso and went into her inner front left leg, which left her bleeding badly, but she managed to run away before he could fire a second round.

Our neighbor Lucas who was watching her, was a true hero, he spent the next 1- 1/2 hours looking all over for Tundra and finally found her hiding under a deck and was able to crawl in and coax her back out.

Lucas took off with her for the Vet, but being a holiday weekend, the first few places he went to were closed, but he kept driving until he found one that was open. By then Tundra had lost a lot of blood. They gave her an IV and told Lucas to take her 45 minutes to the trauma center Vet, as they were closing for the weekend and she was too damaged for them to handle.

She was finally assessed at the Sacramento VCA Pet Hospital. Tundra was in shock, extremely low on blood and bleeding all over from the shotgun blast. The Doctors did not know if she could be saved, but we asked them to try.

Tundra needed two blood transfusions in the first 12 hours and a third the following day, as they could not get her bleeding stopped from the 50-75+ separate wounds from the shotgun blast. All the lead from the birdshot will remain lodged in her body, as digging it all out would cause too much additional trauma.

Her rear right and front left legs took the brunt of the blast and birdshot. Her rear leg may have to be amputated, as there is a lot of damage and the nerves may be severed, but we cannot tell for sure until the swelling goes down and she has some time to heal.

No one plans for things like this to happen and the timing for it could not have been worse from a financial standpoint.

"Help Tundra Heal" is hoping for your prayers, get well wishes and financial donations to help offset the significant medical bills already incurred and those that lie ahead as we work to save her leg and keep it functional, as she is young and has a lot of years ahead of her to hopefully run and play.

Donations from a relatively small group of people can make a huge difference in Tundra's quality of life and would be grateful received by her family.

Any excess donations will be returned and a full accounting of donations received and costs incurred will be distributed to all who can help. We are not looking to make any money from Tundra's suffering, we just need some help to make sure she gets the best possible outcome from this unfortunate event.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
