Our 3 year old Blue nose Pit was badly injured on the 4th of July! Almost every other house in our neighborhood was lighting off illegal fireworks and our fur baby is terrified of loud noises. We can't imagine how scared she was that night seeing Fireworks over head and booming in every direction from the safety of her own backyard. She wasn't out there long, just long enough to eat, drink and get a little bit of energy out, when everyone around us in Wayne Ranch started their own Fireworks display in the streets and their backyards! She as many dogs do, tried to escape the terrifying sounds and bright lights! She managed to jump over our 6ft Cinder Block Wall and in doing so tore her ACL in the right knee. We are saving all that we can and trying to raise funds for her badly needed surgery so she may regain the use of her leg and be able to live a Happy Pain Free Life again! She is only 3 years old and has so many more years ahead of her. She is our only family dog and we have 6 kids that love her dearly. Unfortunately, we cannot afford to get her surgery done right away and the longer we wait the less likely she will have a full uneventful Recovery. She is currently, at the advice of her Vet having to spend every day, at least 22 hrs of every day in a crate to restrict her movement to refrain from further injury to her knee. She is up to date on all vaccines, micro chipped, and is just the sweetest dog anyone could ever have the pleasure of being around. She IS a member of our family and it pains us all to see her unable to use her leg due to her pain. She is currently on strong pain meds from her Vet that help her sleep a lot and keep her calm enough to be able to be crated that long every day. I am now unable to work for the time being add she now requires 24 hrs round the clock care. My husband has been working 60+ hr weeks as a trucker and taking on more routes and odd jobs here and there to save for this expensive, unplanned surgery that she needs ASAP! WE WILL DO WHATEVER WE CAN DO TO HELP HER GET BETTER SOON! If anyone of you loves animals as much as we do and see them as family rather than a pet, then you'd understand what we are going through and the sadness in our hearts that we can't get her on the road to recovery at the moment due to the major financial burden that was out of our hands. I just pray that this touches some others out there and maybe inspires ppl in communities not to shoot off illegal Fireworks at home. You never know who's life you changed or what kind of injury your few moments of personal excitement caused. If anyone could donate any amount of money no matter how big or small of contribution you are making a difference and we would all be greatly appreciative even if it doesn't get us completely to our goal any amount would help get her surgery done sooner. Please I beg everyone out there to consider if this was your own animal this was your own family member pet loved one whomever? If this was your life and your family that was affected wouldn't you want someone out there to help you and help your loved one or your family member get well? Thank you for reading this I wish you all the best and God bless you all thank you for any donations anyone can get it even $0.50 or a dollar anything will help no amount is too small. Thank you again all of you for reading this and taking the time out of your day and your life to make a difference in another's! Sincerely, Bailey and The Schram Family
