Hello Guys...

For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Luke and I'm a student studying animal management and biology.

Now this isn't a pitch or spiel or whatever you call it, this is just me trying to find a way to save my big hairy dog Alfred.

I have been a fundraiser for around 5 years now and during that time I have never really enjoyed asking people to part with small amounts of their own cash and unfortunately I am now asking my friends and others who might read this. 

Alfred (My 9 month old Tibetan mastiff) was diagnosed with a debilitating growth deformity called carpal valgus just before he was 4 months old. In a nut shell its when the growth plate of a bone stops growing prematurely whilst the other bone carries on growing causing a severe outwards twisting of the paw and leg, causing immobility, arthritis with the end result of having the dog put down. At the moment Alfred has not had a long walk or run for about 5 months.

Alfred has had an initial surgery which was pretty unsuccessful and currently Alfred has a paw which is almost facing in the complete opposite direction and this will only get worse, those of you who have seen it know its pretty horrendous.

I have scoured the internet, annoyed a lot of breeders and vets (unintentionally) along the way, to try and come up with a way to save Alfred from being put down and fortunately there is a solution, but like everything in life, nothing is free.

They surgery he will require is very complex, and only a handful of surgeons are confident in performing the surgery. 

The initial surgery depleted all of his dog insurance and my own savings. I have managed to save about half of the money he will require for the next surgery but honestly I cant see me getting the rest in time to help him and the longer I leave the situation the worse it will get.  

What I am asking for is if you could possibly help fund Alfred's operations with what every at all you can, then that would be truly amazing. I dont want to put my dog down when there is a way out which will not cause him discomfort. 

We would really be eternally grateful for any  help we get from you guys no matter how big or small and when he can walk properly we could bring him to meet you! 

please share this with any animal lovers you know :)

Thanks for reading,

Luke, Dayana and Alfred
