Wow, Sydney !! You are mind-blowingly amazing !!
This GFM has been created due to the innudation of messages from the community wanting to help Louie to recover and it is just astonishing!
The Severino family will be so, so, so cross with me for making this page, but, you all want it ?? So, You've got it !!! Let's do this <3
For those not familiar with this story, Louie and Charlie are two beautiful, much loved golden Labradors. On Friday, March 30, they went missing from their home. Louie was found 3.5 weeks after with horrific injuries including a severed paw and part of his tail, he had a skin infection, a broken toe and was malnourished.
The hunt was on to find Charlie now more than ever! Claudia and others searched day in and day out in thick dense bushland, she got thermal drones, normal drones, dog trackers, walked around with hot chicken!! Anything and everything was done to find Charlie!!!
since their disappearance, they have been in news articles and on Chanel 7 news as Sydney’s hearts were captivated by their story!!

Full details of the Liverpool champion news report story here:
Sadly 5 weeks after their disappearance, Charlie was found deceased and we can confirm that Charlie and Louie have been through such a traumatic experience.
We will be holding a memorial day for our beautiful "Charlie" in the near future.
HOW YOU CAN HELP LOUIE:
As mentioned before Louie has lost his paw and the Severino's have spoken with a specialist to look into getting a prosthetic leg. The specialist has advised that this is groundbreaking technology and the first dog taking part in a similar operation will be in a few weeks. The specialist. says that Louie may be a perfect candidate for a transcutaneous osseointegrated amputation prosthesis which is groundbreaking in Australia and may give him the ability to use all 4 legs again!
Louie wants and should be able to, run as fast as our beautiful Charlie, whom I'm sure is already getting up to all kinds of mischief up in heaven.
Anything will help the family give Louie the best opportunity that he deserves after the grief and trauma he has already been through.
Charlie & Louie's page has been inundated with your love, best wishes, condolences, tears, closure, and so much more. The team will endeavour to get back to you all but it's a monumental task. THANK YOU AGAIN!! for, and on behalf of, Louie, Claudia & Charlie & the Severino family. They will be beyond mad with me :)
I'll be posting the "Adventures of Louie & Charlie" in the next day or so. It will fill in all the gaps I know you all so desperately want to know. The where, how, when, why ... Thank you for your ongoing patience and for respecting their privacy at this devastatingly sad time.
If you can spare anything, I know Claudia will be eternally grateful and Louie will be assured of the care he needs now and ongoing. Please share share share and donate whatever you can afford.
Give $1.00, whatever you can afford. The number of requests for this was too overwhelming to ignore, so here we go !! Once we cover vet bills, the remaining funds will be donated to various charities including supplies for dog rescue organisations and Animal Welfare groups. Build that chair in the park with his name on it.
In the meantime, Louie will be needing to see another specialist to be fitted for a temporary prosthesis so he is more comfortable.
YOU ARE THE MOST AMAZING COMMUNITY I HAVE EVER SEEN <3 THANK YOU and ssssshhhhhhh!!
