Hi everyone! My name is Rosko. I'm a 7 year old Dachshund with little legs and a big heart! One morning I woke up in a lot of pain and couldn't walk. The vet diagnosed me with IVDD and said I needed a $4,000 surgery so that I could walk again...

Hi everyone!

My name is Rosko. I'm a 7 year old Dachshund with little legs and a big heart! I've been with my mommy, Brittany, since I was a little puppy. My mommy got me a few weeks after her Daddy passed away. My mommy and I have been best buds since.

On November 13, 2014 I woke up and I couldn't use my back legs. I was in a lot of pain and I was very scared. I couldn't get out of my doggie bed. My mommy came looking for me. She started crying. My mommy raced me to the vet to see what was wrong. My vet came back and told my mommy I had IVDD (Intervertebral Disc Disease) and it had progressed to the point of needing surgery. My mommy started crying again. The vet told her it would $4,000 to have the surgery. My mommy doesn't have that kind of money (she's a teacher). Since I couldn't walk, my mommy got me my own crate and let me rest all day. The next morning I woke up and I couldn't control my bladder anymore. I started peeing and pooing all over the place.

I still whine a lot because I'm in a lot of pain. My mommy starts crying when she hears me. I'm trying to be a strong little weiner for her, but its hard. My little brother, Charlie, doesn't understand whats going on. He sits outside my crate and barks because he wants to play. I want to play with him so bad but I can't.

Please donate a few dollars to help my mommy pay for the surgery. I want to walk again so badly! I'm only 7 years old... I've got a lot of living (and loving) left to do!
