Save Koda Bear
Organized by: Haylee Lubrano
This is my first Service Dog, Koda Bear. Now simi-retired- He is the first dog i trained; and the dog that went to high school with me. He is the dog that saved my life after a suicide attempt, by opening the door and finding help. He is the dog that valiantly saved me from an attacker while at the park. He is the dog i first put my heart and soul into. He is the dog that started my obsession with training service animals. For 8 years, he had been by my side helping me with daily chores. He helps me with the laundry, and picks up stuff on the floor (often times even me.) He is a Rally Obedience champion, and my former 4h dog. He has more skills than i can even count, including search and rescue, non-violent protection work, and some drug detection. But right now... He is fighting for his life at the vet hospital. Monday morning, i woke up, and he wasn't feeling well. He had been throwing up the day prior... but was now listless and nearly cold to the touch. He wouldn't eat, and couldn't keep water down. I rushed him to the vet; where they put him on IV fluids and did X-Rays. He has been hooked up all night, and we are waiting on blood work to come back. The vets feel he most likely is suffering from kidney failure. Please please please, keep him in your thoughts and prayers, and if you can find it in your heart to donate even a dollar to his vet bills, i would be forever greatful. I feel so helpless right now. I am pregnant with my first baby, and finances are tight. Every penny counts! Please Help me bring Koda Bear home!! Help me save the dog that has saved me so many times.
