Gordy was hanging out with his guardian and their dog, minding their own business, when a stray dog jumped the fence and attacked them. Unfortunately the dog did not survive the attack. Gordy lived, but lost his left ear in the attack, along with his guardian suffering significant injuries to her hands after trying to fend off the stray dog. Gordy’s guardian had to receive multiple surgeries on her hands, lost her job, and her home, leaving her unable to care for Gordy.
