About the Campaign

He’s the most interesting dog in the world!

Well, he’s one of the cutest anyway! This in Jake. He is a seven year-old gentleman with very bad teeth. So bad, they are now painful to chew, and he is eating funny, trying to chew on only one side of his mouth. The gums are infected, and some teeth have already fallen out. He needs dental surgery, and pretty soon too.

Jake’s teeth:

Erica adopted him when he was eight months old. A woman had purchased Jake from a breeder, who had probably misrepresented what breed he was, and even though he isn’t that big, the woman had wanted a little little dog, and she no longer wanted Jake! He had also gotten sick, and she was kind of annoyed with him and giving him away or taking him to the shelter. Fortunately Jake found Erica who took him in!

Jake and his best friend Bella (also a rescued pup):

She took him to the vet, it was a minor thing, and he got better and has been a good boy all this time. But Erica admits she got distracted with life, and a daughter with special needs, and just didn’t take care of Jake’s teeth as well as she wishes she had. In January, noticing his problems chewing, Jake went to the vet and got an estimate for dental surgery.

Erica has some of the bill covered, but it is more than she can pay right now, so Jake needs everyone’s help to get fixed up. All donations are just for him, and paid only to the vet (Orchard Vet Clinic in Vancouver, WA) when the surgery is performed. A copy of the estimate is below, click to enlarge it:

    Poor baby! I’m sure after his teeth are fixed or removed, he’ll be much happier. My Yorkie was acting grouchy for several months but after she got her teeth fixed, she went back to being happy and playful like she used to be!

    Jake is adorable. He doesn’t need to be in pain any longer. I hope he gets all the $ needed for his teeth so he can enjoy eating again. I hope Erica is feeding him oft food? My dog Lexie has no teeth and eats soft food with no problems.
