Dog Faces a Hedgehog and Survives, Shares Story of Resilience and Second Chances

A dog in Canada is lucky to be alive after being attacked by a porcupine and stabbed with barbs all over, including the heart and lungs.

Mahalo was out playing with two other dogs in Saskatchewan – which shares a border with Montana in the south – when they encountered the spiky animal and were attacked.

The animal punctured all three canines with its quills, but Mahalo was hurt the most, according to The Huffington Post.

The dog had to undergo surgery to remove the dangerous barbs.

Mike Gerrand, a friend of Mahalo’s owner, has set up a GoFundMe page to help them cover the dog’s extensive vet bills.

“These dogs are the love of my dear friend Dennis’ life,” wrote Gerrand.

Also injured: One of the other dogs, Nestah, was also hurt quite bad and had to undergo surgery at the vet
