Hi,

Help us pay for (our rescued dog from mexico) Biscuits leg amputation. In January 2014 we were on vacation in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico  when we visited the suburb of Bucerias to do some shopping. There we came across many starving dogs including Biscuit- a small, 20lb, tan, male dgg with his back leg dislocated and he had been shot with a pellet gun. He couldn't hop very far so we bought him some chicken and then he began to follow us. Being dog lovers we couldn't just leave him on the streets to perish.

So we started talking with loal rescue groups and we met a lady who was volunteering for a rescue society named Mexpup.com. She said if we get him and pay for the vet expenses then they would foster him there until he was well enough to fly back to us in Vancouver. So we bought a crate, dognapped him and took him to the vet. We paid just $700.00 for all his shots, medication for ticks, room and board, and 2 surgeries on his leg.

When he flew to us 2 weeks ago he was still unable to use his leg. And he was visibly in a lot fo pain barely moving or eating. We took him to a vet here and found out that his entire leg was crushed in what seemed like a car had hit him. Although Biscuit had his pelvic socket removed, the two wires put in to hold the femur to the hip were rubbing on his bones which are now jagged causing him great pain. To add to out little guys troubles the vet found a pellet inside him from being shot with a pellet gun.

To make his pain manageable and get him mobile Biscuit needs to have his back leg amputated. With the consult fees, surgery, and medication we are hoping to raise $2,000 to cover his care. Anything raised above and beyond that will be donated to Mexpup for all their help.

Anything you can do to help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Rusty & Justin
