An 18-month old dog named Papi in Fort Pierce needs your help!

About a month ago, Papi escaped through a fence and was struck by a car. He survived, but is now handicapped and is no longer capable of walking using his two back legs.

Papi now drags his back legs while he walks, which has led to sores and ulcers. 

His family has tried to make a wheelchair for him using pipes and wires but it still is uncomfortable.

The family is trying to raise the money to get the dog a custom wheelchair.

If Papi's family can't come up with the funds, they will consider putting him down.

You can help by visiting Papi's GoFundMe page.
