Now here is the story behind our fundraiser. We hope you can attend, have fun, and help!
Christyle, Kyle, and the famous Douglas have been friends and clients of ours for almost four years. They have been bringing Douglas here on a regular basis for almost that entire time. In fact, they have taken all our classes, (some 3-4 times) attended clinics, and even showed up as part of our demo team at Dogtoberfest several times. They are amazing dog owners, and have an incredible dog.
When Douglas was a puppy he was attacked in the dog park, and it resulted in his leg being shattered. He had two pins placed, and was in a cast for sometimes. His leg healed but the growth plate was damaged, and it left him with a crooked foot and leg. He has remained very active up until the last year or so. He has begun to limp, and formed sores/ cysts from not walking evenly on his foot. Though sometimes he tries to hide it, he now becomes very sore from short walks. (Douglas does not like to show it, as he has a love for life, and being active) This is sad to see for a dog who was once so active.
Here is what the orthopedic specialist at MU said:
surgery will be more complicated because his bone is twisted in two planes instead of one. The orthopedic specialist wants to do a CT scan which will run from 500-800 dollars to make a 3D model of his leg. The surgery will involve breaking and removing pats of his bone and placing a metal frame around the limb to guide the bone into healing correctly. The surgery itself will cost around $3,000 dollars.
These two-wonderful people, and Douglas need our help! Christyle is in school, Kyle is the sole income, and they are also planning a wedding! They deserve the help of a community. Attend our event, have fun, and donate what you can. Even if it is just $1, we greatly appreciate it. You can’t go wrong by having some fun, wearing out the dog, and helping out an amazing dog and his family!
