This is the incredibly sad story of a poor dog who nearly lost his life after an encounter with a porcupine in Craven, Saskatchewan. Mahalo, the injured dog, and her best buds Nestah and Soljah, were playing outside when they came across a grumpy porcupine. That porcupine never hesitated at all and instantly began to unleash its quills upon all three dogs. Unfortunately, Mahalo was the one who got the worst of the attack.
Poor Mahalo required extreme surgery to remove all of the quills, some of which even pierced her lungs. The surgery bills amounted to upwards of $8,000, so her owners set up a GoFundme page for her and the other dogs. Thanks to the power of the internet, they were able to raise $15,272. Mahalo, Nestah, and Soljah, continue to recover from their injuries.
