Gunner gets life-saving surgery

The Bridge

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – It’s going to be an emotional waiting game for those following the story of Gunner from the SD Gunner Fund. This therapy dog who has comforted so many over the years is now in need of support. Recently, he was diagnosed with a cancer that could not successfully be treated with radiation because of the location on his leg. So, doctors say the best option for him was to amputate.

But, this just the first step in his journey. We caught up with him and his owners on the morning of his surgery. Watch our story for more details.

UPDATE! Gunner came through the surgery very well. Here’s video of him leaving the Port City Animal Hospital.

We’ll continue to follow his progress. In the meantime, if you’d like to learn more about Gunner and the SD Gunner Fund and/or support its mission there are many fundraisers coming up including a Clay Shoot this weekend.

A second fundraiser for the pup is a sporting clay shoot scheduled for April 17 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The fundraiser entry is $600 per team or $150 per person.

Attendees can enter two raffles to win shotguns, have lunch, a working dog demonstration and participate in a silent auction. Some items in the auction include a custom double kennel, hunting trips, flight lessons, a hand-forged custom knife and more.

To sign up for the fundraiser reach Elena K. Nock at 912-695-6573 or email
