Hello,

So, in case you didn't know... Rocco was born on my Mom’s bed while at the time she was fighting for her life at O’Connor Hospital in San Jose. I have raised Rocco as my child and does not know he is a dog (most people say he does not act like one at all)

Rocco has recently begun losing his teeth due to gum disease and genetic deterioration of the jaw bone. Last week, he was at the vet under anesthesia going extractions when the vet called me and said they could not proceed due to the fragile condition of his jaw. They referred me to a specialist.

We saw the specialist on Monday and basically confirmed my worst fear... Rocco has a fracture at the tip of his jaw and a break at the rear of his mouth. He will require a surgical procedure to remove all of his teeth. The Doctor says his prognosis is very good. He is a happy and healthy little boy. I have already transitioned him to soft foods and he is currently eating by “tongue to pallet ". He is gaining weight but remains in pain. Once recovered, he will not have any deformities – only a tongue that will stick out occasionally.

His surgery will cost $2,000.00. I am hoping to raise as much as possible by his scheduled surgery date of July 28th. I may need to postpone due to funds availability.

I normally can hold my own but at this time; I am frustrated that I cannot control this situation. Please help. Any help is appreciated.

I will post regularly with his progress. God Bless.

Joanna and Rocco
