Please Help PERRY COLE, the Great Dane

Perry Cole


That beautiful dog up above is Perry Cole the Great Dane. He’s one of the sweetest dogs on the planet. He’s 5 years old and was born at Service Dog Project in Massachusetts. They train Great Danes to be service dogs for ex-military servicemen and for children and adults with chronic illnesses that affect their balance. If a dog doesn’t have all the qualities they look for in a service dog, they allow a loving family to adopt him. That’s what happened to Perry and he was welcomed by the Cole family in Massachusetts.

A few weeks ago, Perry lost his appetite and had other symptoms. His family brought him to their vet where he was hospitalized a few times. Then he went to a specialist and was hospitalized there for a few days. At one point he only had a 50% – 50% chance of making it. Things were grim. He had a feeding tube put in and went through a lot of tests, including scoping. They’re still waiting for the results.  Some possibilities: gastroenteritis, pancreatitis, IBD.

Update:  Perry was able to go home and has found his appetite again!  But then he developed a pneumorthorax, which is a hole in the lung. The vets don’t know why and want to do a CAT Scan which costs $2000.

The cost for all of his veterinary bills is currently at $25,000.  The family is doing everything they can to come up with any money they can. But they need help.  PLEASE CONSIDER DONATING $5 or $10 or whatever you can to Perry’s GoFundMe.

His family, friends, all the people who love him and I would be very grateful.
