In late 2011, I rescued a beautiful pit bull from a high kill shelter in California. His name is Rockford. He is my daughter Tiffani, and the rest of my familys world. He had a pretty rough life before he came to us. He was diagnosed with having a mass cell tumor on his rear left foot. I took him to the vet 3 weeks ago, and I was told it has to be removed. In 3 weeks time it has doubled in size, and it does not look good. It is also causing him pain when he walks on it. I suffer from disabling tremours, and right now we are living on a fixed income. I am so afraid that our baby isn't going to get the medical attention he needs because of funds. If there is anyone that could find it in their hearts to help, my family would be so greatful. It will be payed forward.

Rockford update: Baby boy was so happy to see us when they let him back into the room. The Dr. Newman just fell in love with him, but so does everyone that meets him. The game plan that was laid out for us is, they absolutely want to do the chemo, possibly toe amputation. All of the aspirations and blood work came back good, so they do not think the cancer has spread to any organs. He has an infection in his foot, from the sutures used in his last surgery, so he will be on 1000 mg of cepholexin 2 times a day for 7-10 days. On the 2 hour drive back home, he laid in the back seat and chewed on a great big bone. I can honestly say if I had been poked and prodded on as much as he was today, I would have wanted to bite someone, but he was a perfect gentleman. It has been a very emotional day today. We went from thinking we only had a short time left with our baby, to having real HOPE. We want to thank everyone for the prayers and well wishes from everyone. We love you all.

I was given an estimated cost for the amputation $1700.00, for the chemo $1450.00
He will be getting 1 chemo treatment per week, for 6 weeks. I was also told that there was a chance he would have to recieve more treatments.
