WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - Luigi is a gentle giant who needs some help.
Jefferson County SPCA operations manager Katelynn Drohan says the 3-year-old mastiff has torn ligament in one of his hind legs.
Right now he's under the care of SPCA foster mom Lisa Lobdell.
He'll remain with her through the surgery and recovery period.
The problem is the surgery costs $3,500 and they've raised $1,800 so far.
You can donate on the SPCA’s Facebook page.
