For many, dogs are not just pets, they’re another member of the family.

That’s exactly why one couple is spending thousands of dollars to save their husky.

Meet 6-year-old Sarge.

He has a cancerous tumor, but he’s being treated at the Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine.

The treatment is costly though, nearly $10,000.

His owners say the cost may seem over-the-top to some,  but they will do anything for their pet.
