We have some sad news about our little Milky. 

Milky's story -

Milky was surrendered to us, covered in fleas, with ingrown toenails, horrible ear infections, and he was a biter!  You see, Milky was in so much discomfort from all of his ailments that his immediate response to the pain of human touch was to bite.  Milky's previous family didn't know how to take care of all of these problems, so they relagated him to the basement, in a crate, all alone. Ugh... poor little guy! Brenda got hold of Milky and his healing began.  He required many healing bathes for his flea infested coat and skin and had such terrible ear infections that he had to be held down by someone, while wearing thick gloves, for treatment.  So sad.  His biting required months of home visits from our trainers.  Milky was obviously not adoptable in this condition and Brenda gave him a safe, healthy home with her.  He is thankfully all healed from those issues, and has been with Brenda and Randy so long that he is the smallest member of the pack now :-). But, over the last few months, Milky has been in pain with a herniated disk in his back.  Brenda has been doing everything she can to help him heal, swimming, cortizone shots, muscle relaxers, vet visits, massage, carrying him everywhere, but now the vet has said "its time for surgery".  **sigh**.  We love Milky, and will see him through this to get him comfortable.  But we need help.  We are still getting quotes for surgery, but it looks like it will be approximately $3,000. Whoa!! Thats a huge amount for our recue!  But... Milky's future and happiness are worth it.  No matter what... Milky will be pain free again!!!  Please make a donation to help Milky get surgery.  Thank you!
