I rescused my Shelby when she was 10 weeks old. I decided to get pet insurance and sure glsd I did. We were at a dog park to socialize her and while she was playing with another 6 month old puppy, a large dog ran across the park and attacked her while another jumped in. Sometime later we were at another dog park and a pit bull came up and just attacked her. Then a month later she was attacked by a pack of six dogs. Needless to say she received her worse injuries. But without the insurance I would have had a very large bill that I would have had trouble paying for, with the overnight stay, surgery, drain tube and meds. It was the best thing I ever did getting insurance.
