GREER, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Noah is a dachshund with places to go, but movement is difficult for him.

The dog, 6, was attacked by other neighborhood dogs and his hind leg was severely injured. Now veterinarians recommend amputation.

Noah's foster caregiver, Jennifer Remeta, runs "Abby's Animal Angels," a non-profit organization that helps dogs like Noah recover from injuries and find good homes.

"When he was attacked, the way they bit him back here actually severed part of his cyatic nerve and caused damaged on the other side, so he cannot use his left leg at all," said Remeta.

Remeta said she has created a GoFundMe site to raise money for Noah's operation and a new wheelchair from Eddie's Wheels.

The goal is to raise $1,000 for Noah.
