Brutus is a very handsome tail-wielding Corgi boy, who just turned 10 on June 2nd. He recently ruptured two discs in his back and will need to have surgery to correct the problem. Here is Bru's story in the words of Corgi Mom Betty:

"Suddenly my Brutus has two ruptured discs in his long back. This is genetic. I have taken him to 4 vets. He has done the best with chiropractic, homeopathic, and electric acupuncture, plus steroids and prednisone. The homeopathic vet says she can heal him; the surgical vet says Bru has a 90% chance of recovery with surgery. Either way, it’s expensive. Brutus will be 10 on June the 2nd, and Corgis can live to be 17. He’s doing quite well with all the treatments, but he throws himself into pain when he jumps up or when he’s happy that friends or clients come to the door. Thus, I have to confine him, nor can I take him on walks except to go out briefly. All of my vets say that he absolutely doesn’t need to be “put down”, that he is either able to be healed or fixed with surgery."

The estimate for surgery that I received from Bru's vet totaled $4,680, but with follow-up care and the Fundrazr fee I have rounded to $5,000. There is a video available on his Fundrazr page as well. Please share his story and donate if you can so we can get this senior Corgi boy back to Corgi walks and freedom of movement very soon!
