Lenny's Story

Hi! It's me, Lenny! I am a Great Pyrenees/rough coated collie/maybe part husky - I just don't know ! I am so thankful that GPPR saved me from a lot of pain and sadness, because I had been shot in the face and left to roam for months.

GPPR fixed my eye by having a surgeon remove it, and they removed some of the buckshot as well, and I felt so much better. The rescue sent me to this great place called Oregon, where I live in a wonderful foster home that is taking care of me.

For now, my jaw is unable to open properly, and it hurts to chew, so I am getting ready for another round of surgeries to fix my jaw.

And I need your help! I have been told that my next round of specialist vet bills will be almost $10,000! I need a special CT scan to see all of the damage in my jaw, and then I will have a very special dental surgeon work on fixing everything.

I really appreciate anything you can give, big or small, so I can be pain-free again! I can't wait to get to chew on bones and toys again!

Love, Lenny

Don't miss your chance to WALK with a PURPOSE this Valentine's Day and week. Grab your partner, friend, grandma, and pup for GPPR's first-ever Virtual 5k!
