Legs for Blue...
Organized by: Eve Morello
Blue's "quality" of life is very important me. I was unaware of how hard it was really going to be to take care of a "handi-capped" dog. Blue is a happy dog, so determined, and motivated! He hops around, using both front legs, dragging his rear end. The callous' s that have formed on his rear legs, actually help him to keep from bleeding, forming lesions, and open wounds. I bathe him daily and treat his topical issues, and skin problems he does have. I do my best to clean his urine and feces as soon as needed. I try to treat him like a "normal" dog, but he knows hes differant. Im trying to raise money to take blue to see a Nuero Specialist. Doctors have told me they are unsure of how much Blue can feel or use in his rear end, but also, arent aware that he does have feeling and use more now, than he ever has. Blue wags his tail periodically, and attempts to use his legs when i "wheel-barrow" him around. I beleive Blue could walk if he had surgery. Ive researched "decompression" surgery for Lrg. Dogs specificaly, and located board certified surgeons locally. Estimated coats range from five thousand dollars to seventy-nine hundred... And sometimes, it takes two surgerys to acheive the desired goal. Blue dreams about running.... Maybe you can help him make his dream a reality?
