Help needed

Can anyone help? Below is the story. This is from Coni Coleman

Basil while in foster in Portland jetted through the door. No one's fault but his and was hit by a car. He is at Dove Lewis ICU and ER. While I have been raising funds through Garage Sales and selling many things I now need to raise money for vet bills that are staggering.he took a hit to the head(bumper) and it looked like he would loose an eye but they may save it. He will most likely loose a le
g. Anyone able to chip in can add to the 4theloveofaustin@gmail.com
PayPal account as it will spread things thin for me. I am hoping Basil will be released soon as to not raise the vet bill any higher. This is a dog that spent his first 3 1/2 years in a chain length kennel with only a duck for company. He gets a long with all other dogs . Kind of ironic that I have a son and a dog with a Traumatic Brain Injury. As the vet said it is not as big of a deal if the dog is not quite as smart as before. He can be happy.
Any other ideas appreciated.

This was posted on FB, just thought I'd repost here. I don't know anything about the lady, but perhaps someone does since she is a foster mom??

That comment has me sick. If a dog bolts, it is the PERSON's FAULT, not the dog's!

Does this person foster the dog or they are helping someone who IS fostering or what?

Hope the dog pulls through. 😞

Usually but not always. A determined or frightened Basenji can find a way. If a person is walking through a door, a Basenji can blast through the space near their legs, no matter how small that space may be. (I don't know about you but my butt is wider than my legs and even if I only open a door wide enough to get squeeze myself through there is still some space near my legs.) The dog may still be able to slip through even if the person grabs them, especially if there is no collar to hang onto. Accidents can happen and no matter what actually happened, it doesn't change the result.

If I have a dog that is a flight risk then I set up extra security measures to prevent bolting like putting an ex-pen around the door to add an extra barrier.

Accidents happen but blaming them on the dog is not right.

My dogs are secured in crates or the bedroom (Rotties were okay behind a gate, I'd never trust my basenjis with one) if the door is open. Every time, every single time, for my entire adult life. So yeah, dog bolts, the person failed to secure the dog. Unless some person enters if you don't know it, tree falls on house, burglar comes in, police raid your house by mistake etc… if YOU open a door, YOU are responsible, not the dog.
