My Oggie Doggie needs Hip Surgery! Here's our story...

  It all started 2 years ago when my boyfriend rescued a Mastiff mix from a horrible place. Oggie, his mother, and litter mates were kept in a very small cage outside. Cramped, filthy, and cold. Oggie was in pretty bad shape when we picked him up and brought him home, but after a bath and a nice meal all seemed well. 

  It wasn't until he was a few months old that we noticed he was not developing properly. His back legs were a lot taller and skinnier than the front. He would hesitate to climb up, jump, run and play. Which for a 6 month old puppy this was unusual. 

  So off to the vet we went! We were hoping to hear "He's just going through an awkward stage. He should grow out of it." Unfortunately that was not the case. Oggie suffers from early onset Hip Dysplasia. He has severe muscle atrophy in his rear and walks on three legs to get around. He's had 2-3 partial ACL tears which are very difficult for him. We do everything we can to make him comfortable, but now the time has come for surgery. 

  My boyfriend and I have our finances tied up into our house, truck,and caring for our other animals. We keep attempting to save for his surgery however life keeps throwing those darn roller coasters our way. We are looking for about $3500 to help cover some of the costs for his surgery. We are hoping with surgery it will greatly improve his quality of life. If we can't raise enough, I'm afraid we are going to have to put my baby boy to sleep. We have agreed not to let him suffer. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.So, will you help us save our big boy?
