Jaws is an 11 week old, 3 pound Chihuahua and is in need of your help. Jaws was attacked by an 80 pound Husky in his own home several weeks ago and the owners did not seek medical help. They let this sweet puppy suffer for well over a week before a family member, who was visiting, noticed that Jaws had been injured. She took possession of him and his two siblings and contacted Pup Squad to help .
Pup Squad got right on it. After an evaluation at the vet the following morning, it was found that his little jaw was severely broken on both sides and his mouth was seriously infected. That meant that this incredibly sweet puppy was suffering in extruciating pain for all of this time! The break was so bad that two surgeons recommended removing a portion of his lower jaw and two of his teeth.
Jaws had his surgery on Friday, February 26th and he is recovering well so far! He will still be able to eat and drink but it is likely he won't be able to pick up toys with his tiny mouth. He will be on wet food for 4-6 months while he heals and is currently being fostered and cared for by one of our experienced medical fosters. He will eventually be available for adoption when he is all healed. We will need to make sure we find the perfect home for this perfect boy. Even after all he's been through he is still the most loving, sweet puppy you will ever want to meet.
We are asking our supporters and friends for help raising funds to help cover his surgery plus vet visits so far. Jaws appreciates any help you can provide to help cover his medical bills as he is feeling so lucky to have Pup Squad rush in to save him .
