February 22, 2012 (San Diego’s East County) -- ECM columnist Cate Sacks, owner of the local shelter rescue and dog training company, Shelter Dogs to Dream Dogs, is no stranger to odd animal antics. But bad behavior hit close to home when Scooter, her seven-pound pet Maltese, was mauled by a stranger dog while out in public with the family.
The attack left a two-inch hole in Scooter's chest cavity and lungs. He also almost lost his eye and more.
Due to the quick thinking of Sacks, Scooter survived. The attack was one quick, unpredictable and instant bite.
Sacks needs help paying Scooter's vet bills. Scooter's emergency medical costs are currently at $4,000 and rising. If you'd like to donate, please visit the paypal site at https://www.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_flow&SESSION=o-o1Mb1YSnjgW....
