A well known homeless duo, Mungo Andrew and Ernie have been struggling to find a place to live, mainly because most rentals don’t want a dog. But not Sarah from Langwarrin who last week rented out a room in her home to this top team.
Ernie got on extremely well with Sarah’s 2 Heelers and Doberman X and said ‘Ernie is a grouse dog, well behaved, gets on well with other dogs and just loves everyone’.
Life was looking on the up when Mungo took Ernie along with him to mow a lawn in Karingal. Tragically they were involved in a serious car accident, leaving them both in a critical condition.
Mungo was taken to hospital in an ambulance and the wonderful CFA stayed with Ernie and got him to Karingal Vet.
Without the owner to vouch for payment, Karingal Vet never missed a beat. They rushed Ernie straight in to emergency surgery for a ruptured spleen. Nurse Sarah contacted Pet Medical Crisis (PMC) and we were able to donate our maximum but more was needed. On hearing of the case, donations came flooding in from a wonderfully supportive community and Second Chance Rescue offered to cover the bill.
Here’s a little clip of Ernie getting ready to be discharged home to Sarah and waiting for his Dad to get out of intensive care. He’s been a wonderfully popular patient – and we can see just why.
Thanks to: Ambulance Victoria; CFA Langwarrin and Karingal; Karingal Vet; Landlord Sarah; Pet Medical Crisis; the extraordinary community and Rescued With Love. What a top team!!!!
Mungo and Ernie went on to both make full recoveries and are reunited in health.
