Violet is one of the sweetest puppies you will ever meet, and yet she has had one of the hardest lives an eleven week old puppy could have.
Violet was rescued from a dog fighting ring, where it is suspected that she was going to be used as a bait dog. To start the process of recovery, we brought her to a foster family in Northern Colorado. Our hope was that in this foster home, she was going to be safe, learn about love, play with other dogs, start her training, and most importantly, be shown what it really is like to be in a loving home - which is night and day compared to where she came from.
Unfortunately, Violet started showing abnormal signs. On the first morning, she was acting lethargic, and within a couple hours, she refused to eat, drink or get up. Soon thereafter, she was vomiting and had diarrhea. By that evening she was in critical condition and we immediately started fluids until we could rush her to an emergency vet (about 45 minutes away! on a Saturday night). Once we arrived to the hospital, the vets immediately brought her to the back to start oxygen therapy, fluids, and medications to help stabilize her.
Doctors had a grim outlook and did not know if she would make it, as she was going in and out of stability. But they didn't want to give up, and neither did Violet. Violet ended up spending seven days and nights fighting for her life.
After thousands of dollars spent and many sleepless nights, it was determined that our sweet Violet girl was poisoned while in her foster mom's backyard, where many other neighborhood dogs are starting to now show symptoms of poisoning.
We now need your help. Violet's medical bills have come to $6500.00. We almost lost this sweet girl, but we are so grateful that she is now on the road to recovery and want to continue treating her to the best of our ability.
Please consider contributing to her medical bills, continued treatment, and wishlist registry. She deserves to live the most wonderful and happy life after what she has been through.
