What Happened to Pudgy
Malachy James, the owner of Pudgy, announced the tragic news on his Instagram and newly launched YouTube channel.
He explained that while out for a walk, they encountered a man who wanted Pudgy to meet his dog. “I put it down, thinking they were just going to sniff each other. “That’s what dogs usually do when they meet,” he explained.
Unfortunately, the other dog “instantly attacked Pudgy,” according to Malachy.
They rushed it to an animal hospital and sedated him, but were later informed that his severe injuries required surgery that would cost $12,000 to $15,000.
They were also told that the surgery would not ensure his survival, and the dog died as a result.
