Man Puts His Car Up For Sale To Save His Dog’s Life

Dog owners consider their dogs to be relatives, and when it comes to supporting them, they go above and beyond.

Randy Etter, a dog owner, discovered his dog Gemini had some health issues when the pup became lethargic and followed him around. When the poor dog began to vomit, the man was so concerned for his pet's survival that he rushed him to the hospital, but the case of Gemini was proving difficult to diagnose.



The vet couldn't figure out what was wrong with the puppy, but the man refused to give up. He adored this dog above all else, so he began visiting various veterinarians, eventually losing his work. And after many visits to various veterinarians, no one seemed to know what was wrong with the puppy.

[I]t just seemed like I wasn't going to get anywhere or get him the assistance he needed in time. It was truly one of the most terrifying things I'd ever had to deal with. Etter told the Dodo. After a long time, the source of the dog's suffering and vomiting was discovered: a small object was stuck in Gemini's intestines.



Etter's girlfriend's baby girl had thrown her bottle at the dog while playing, and even though the man had always been careful whenever she hurled the bottle and removed it from the pooch, the canine eventually got access to it and swallowed a bit from the top of the bottle. The piece was now causing a blockage, and the dog needed immediate surgery.

The intervention cost $4,500, which was more than Etter had in his bank account at the time. The man did not give up and posted a heartfelt post on Facebook describing the situation as well as listing his car for sale.



He hoped that somebody would try to buy his car so that he could use the money to save his beloved pooch, but something incredible happened after his emotional tweet, and he didn't have to sell his car at all. Initially, the man's friends decided to support him and gave him a loan of $2,000.00.

The S.O.A.R. Initiative (whose focus is on protecting the human-animal connection and expanding access to health care and human services for those who are usually underserved) assisted in raising the $3000 required for the surgery. The dog surgery went well, and he was soon back at home with his dad, who adored him.

 


This story had a happy ending thanks to everyone's goodness, and thanks to the owner who reminded us what true love is.
