This adorable little nugget is Milo, who is what some people call a mutt.
Milo's parents take him for walks for his daily exercise—as we all know, a tired dog is a happy dog. On one of these daily walks, they were taken by surprise when a neighborhood dog started chasing them, and ultimately attacked Milo. Poor Milo was in bad shape—his parents knew that he needed stitches, and that would mean an emergency veterinary visit.
Bite wounds are a very common reason dogs are seen by their veterinarians for emergency appointments. In general, it’s important that all dog bite wounds from another dog get evaluated by a veterinarian, as they can be serious injuries. Even the smallest puncture wounds from a bite have a high risk of infection and should be addressed as soon as possible.

Milo’s dad is an apprentice and not making a lot of money and his mom is the only one working full time. This emergency visit was a surprise, so they applied to Fur Kids Foundation for help. We were more than happy to help, and because of your support had enough funding to do so.
Animal control was made aware of the aggressive dog, and Milo is well on his way to recovery. His mom hopes he won't let this little scuffle get in the way of him loving his daily walks.
If you’ve had another dog attack your pup on an outing, it may be a good idea to work with a dog trainer to help with any behavioral issues that could come up afterward. Fur Kids Foundation keeps a list of Dog Trainers in our Resources section.
