Django (on the left), the Italian Greyhound has a painful congenital disorder called 'Patellar Luxation' (his knee cap won't stay in the joint!). Although, he's still playful and fast on 3 legs, he has zero use of his hind-right leg and holds it up in pain 24/7. Just after a week of walking outdoors and making lots of friends with the hard workers in the Fashion District in Downtown Los Angeles, Django's knee became very inflamed and he became lethargic. He must now be crated for most of the day and can no longer play with his sister (pictured on the right) until he has corrective surgery and goes through some physical therapy.

Although he gets to hang out with me at home all day, I can tell this extroverted pup misses his sister, and misses saying hi to all the people that smile and pet him as he walks down the busy streets here in DTLA.

Unfortunately, because it is congenital—his surgery is not covered by his insurance plan as it is a 'pre-existing' condition. After some emergency medical costs for myself last month, the cost of his procedure is too much for me to have his surgery soon enough for him to get back on 4 feet and prevent any further damage to the joint. Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated. I am hoping I can raise enough to have his surgery within the next few weeks. The sooner this puppy can walk again, the better his chances of growing to his full potential and living a pain free life :)

**Your donation also serves as a ticket to come to my house, have a drink on me, and play with this pup (and his sister)!
