A well-known Comox Valley dog named Pup-Eye has had a hard life and some recent veterinarian attention to address a stomach infection.

Pup-Eye got the name when his current people rescued him from the Prince Rupert SPCA the day before scheduled euthanasia.

Pup-Eye has been run over by a Winnebago, needed 30 stitches after an encounter with a pit bull and lost an eye when he was beaten by a previous owner.

His current owners recently had an emergency with a member of their family in Powell River, and say they can’t pay the vet bill of $1,600.

Pup-Eye is five years old and his people hope to have their beloved dog for many years.
