Two Dogs Injured in DUI Crash Need Help

Roommates in Vista, San Diego, are requesting for help Tuesday night after their dogs were hit and one was seriously wounded by a drunk driver.

The crash took place late Monday night while the dogs were sleeping in their dog house in the 2500 block of Foothill Drive.

Based on the California Highway Patrol the woman driving had a blood-alcohol level 3 times the legal limit.

The woman was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence.

The 5-year old American bulldog, Lucky and Boxer mix Ryder were hit when the driver plowed into their dog house.

Lucky sustained a broken pelvis and shattered bones in his leg.

To recuperate he will be needing surgery to either get a prosthetic or to amputate the leg.

The procedures cost between $5,000 and $15,000.

“He didn’t deserve to get hit,” states Lucky’s owner Jason Ehrengruber. “He’s my best friend and I just want to save him.”

Those who want to donate funds to assist cover the cost of Lucky’s surgery can email SaveLuckysLife@gmail.com.
