A female pit bull named Lefty was left shot after an armed intruder invaded her and her owner’s home on July 23rd in Accomack County, VA. Lefty came forward to protect her owner from an armed intruder. The intruder arrived at the home with a shotgun and when Left stepped forward the man shot Lefty shattering her shoulder and tearing off the soft tissue of her front leg.
She was rushed to the Atlantic Animal Hospital and unfortunately her leg had to be amputated because of the severity of the gun blast. The surgery cost $1500 and the hospital sought the aid of social media to pay for the costs. AAH posted on their Facebook page and received an incredible response. Enough donations came in and the dog’s surgery was fully paid for.
“I was just amazed at how many people responded,” said Dr. Michele Leatherbury, owner of Atlantic Animal Hospital. “It was incredible.” Lefty left the hospital on Monday, July 29, and is expected to make a full recovery under the loving care of her owner. Story via
