Beloved dog suffering horror injuries from jumping off sofa left needing £10k op

A pet owner was stunned when her poor dog suffered horrific injuries while jumping off a sofa and was left needing a £10,000 operation to help save his life.

Gaynor Beeley is desperately trying to raise the cash for little Mo to have emergency surgery in just 48 hours to give her dog the best chance of recovery.

A freak accident last Wednesday left the dog was left unable to walk after leaping off the sofa at home left him paraplegic and crying in pain.

Seven-year-old Mo's injuries were confirmed by a vet who referred him to a specialist for emergency treatment costing £10,000.

Gaynor from Sheffield says she then faced a "nightmare" because her insurance would only cover £3,000 in vet bills, leaving her in need of £7,000 more to pay for the surgery upfront, YorkshireLive reports.

She feared that without the surgery, her dog, who could not walk or relieve his bladder without help, would need to be put down.

Gaynor set up a Go Fund Me and explained: "I thought £3,000 was plenty. So I set up the fundraiser in the vet's car park. I didn't know what else to do.

"Who has £10,000 lying around?"

Fortunately, she was then able to find a veterinary surgery which agreed to let her pay for Mo's treatment when collecting him, giving her more time to come up with the money.

Gaynor set to action, sharing a plea on her craft business' selling page, asking supporters who were planning to buy from her in the future if they would consider purchasing now.

The money she raised from this, along with loans from her friends, and the fundraiser meant she was able to give the go-ahead for Mo's surgery.

Gaynor says Mo has now regained feeling and can stand for short periods of time on his back legs.
