I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love.

For me they are the role model for being alive.

Champ needs your help! And a home!


Champ was shot 5 times, while protecting his home. Still his previous owners, for whatever reason, elected to have him euthanized

 

Coastal German Shepherd Rescue "received a plea from the South LA Shelter about a dog named Champ who was shot 5 times while protecting him home from an intruder. Champ has several bullets lodged in his body and needs medical care. He has been kept as evidence while the case was pending. He has now been released from evidence and will be euthanized if he is not rescued. His owners refused to get Champ the medical care he needs.

Coastal German Shepherd Rescue would like to rescue Champ and get him the medical care that he so desperately needs. His medical care is going to be costly as he has numerous injuries. The injuries that we know of are: bullets lodged behind ear, broken jaw bone, bullet lodged in upper leg causing nerve issues in his leg.

Champ needs to be seen by our wonderful vet team ASAP. We are planning to pick him up tomorrow and begin his care. We need your help though! Our medical bills are huge and we need your generous support to save Champ. Please make a donation to help save Champ today!

Update 3/12/10
Champ is truly a champ! We picked him up today and transported him to our wonderful vet team at Alicia Pet Care Center. He is getting a full body work up and we will know tonight what the medical plan is.

I can tell you this, Champ is one sweetheart of a boy! With the help of two other rescuers, we were able to capture his rescue on video and pictures. Check back soon for those. Champ gave his paw to all that would stop and give him a pet and a hello. He has wounds covering his neck, shoulder, abdomen and a bullet entry under his eye. With all of these wounds he still remained calm and collected! Please help us help Champ get his much needed medical care today! Every donation helps!

If you are interested in more information or if you would be interested in fostering or adopting this wonderful guy, please email Tiffany at tiffanycgsr@sbcglobal.net.

What a wonderful story although heart breaking. How could anyone give up a dog that saved their lives.. Some Humans are just heartless...
Stumpy we would have brought home some sheep treats but we didn't have any pockets and Mom wasn't offering...

I'm very sorry for Champ. He is just a beautiful guy and his heroics in guarding his home are wonderful. I hope he comes through everything OK.

From me, a donation at a later time.

Champ is definitely a champ that can overcome anything. I know he'll find a new home with such heart.

K9friend, I agree...but "heartbraking" is a little more diplomatic than I would have phrased it!

Heelers, I hope you filled up on sheep treats before you left!

Stella, With help from people like you, Champ will be fine!

Norwood, I feel the same!
