Pug Lovers save Buck the pug
Colleen Bighley was recently faced with one of a pug parent’s worst nightmares. Her two year old pug, Buck, darted from the house and was hit by a car. Buck suffered 3 broken legs and needed to have a costly surgery.
The required surgery was $3000 and Collen Bighley was worried she would not be able to come up with the money. She shared Buck’s story on a popular pug website where she normally shared pictures of Buck and her other pugs. She told her fellow pug lovers that her family could not afford Buck’s surgery and she was going to bring Buck home and spend one more night with him before he would be put to sleep.
Fourteen minutes after sharing her story on the popular website, fellow pug lovers replied stating they would donate money to help save Buck. Donations came from around the world and Collen was able to pay for Buck’s surgery.
Buck hasn’t made a full recovery yet, but he has had his surgery and is getting better each day.
Pugs and pug people are simply the greatest!
