Help save Bruce
Organized by: Autumn Millan
it all started on a summer day when I found my best friend wondering in a dmv parking lot, he looked at me with his big human like brown eyes and I instantly fell in love. I knew in my heart this was meant to be so I picked him up and off we went. I took him home and went to my doctors appointment which was extremely important After battling with lung cancer for 3 years i found out I was in remission. Was this a mericale? Was Bruce an angel sent from above? In my heart I believe yes! He instantly clicked with my children and even my boy friend who isn't an animal person. We all fell in love with him.
A couple of weeks after having Bruce we realized there was something not quite right with him. He constantly chased his tail, attacked shadows for hours, and couldn't sit still to save his life. But that was okay we excepted him for who he was. As he did for us.
One day I came home from work and he completely mutilated his tail. Into him to the vet and they diagnosed him with ocd and anxiety. I bought a cone and put him on anxiety medicines and he eventually stopped chasing his tail. A year went by and everything seemed fine until now.
His tail is literally mutualated so badly that it's driving him insane. The vet wants to amputate his tail so he can no longer cause harm to himself. He has damaged the nerves in it and all it's doing is causing pain. He is on antibiotics and pain meds for the time being. But the surgery needs to happen relatively soon. For his own comfort. If I could pay for it myself I would but reality is I have 4 children and so many bills I cannot afford it by myself. If I cannot have this surgery done I am going to have to give my mericale dog to a no kill shelter. And that alone will kill me!!! Please help my family and our angel! He means everything to me and I cannot imagine my life without him in it!
