They believe he's only around a year old but say he will get a chance at living a long life.

Mr. Jenkins, however, will need surgery to amputate a severely damaged toe on his back right paw and to insert a skin graft into a wound on the back of his head.

"The initial plan is we’ll get a skin graft on his head and then we’ll probably take off a section of the back foot...definitely neuter him and microchip him at the same time," Jean Keating of the Lucas County Pit Crew said.

A "chip in" fund has already been set up by the Lucas County Pit Crew to help cover the expenses and donations are being accepted at http://lcpckirby.chipin.com/mr-jenkins.

The Lucas County Pit Crew is also accepting checks via mail at  PO Box 351222 Toledo, OH 43635.

On Thursday, The Lucas County Pit Crew reported that Mr. Jenkins had his needed surgeries and was resting comfortably.
