About 7 months ago my sister found a 1-2 month old puppy in the street, it had no tags and we couldn't find the owner. She brought it home and we decided to keep the dog, she was an adorable German Sherpard (or perhaps a mix, but she looks mostly german sherpad). We called her Frannie, got her shots and everything else that needed to be done. She was really hyper, fun, and just amazingly awesome. We built a fence by hand so she could have a large area to run around in, and we all pitched in to take care of her. Currently she is 9 months old.
Recently Frannie had begun to act strange, she didn't want to walk much and she was constantly sad. When she did walk she would walk with a limp and would never run. We did a little research and found out that hip dysplasia is rather common in German Shepards, so we took her to the vet. The vet said it was most likely hip dysplasia and took x-rays today.
Frannie is in a lot of pain right now and there's only one real way to help her. She's currently on pain killers but that's only a short term solution. The vet said that the only way to help her is surgery. And that's where we need help. The surgery is going to cost atleast $1,200.
We just don't have the money for it, we're trying to scrape together what we can but it's hard. My parents are currently trying to put 3 of us through college which I think we all know is a pain in the ass, as well as pay the bills.
I ask Facepunch because I've seen the community come together before to help others in situations like this.
Here she is currently
and this is the x-ray from the vet (it's very large)
I'm not really used to PayPal, but I have an account and from what I understand I just have to give my email, so here it is:
Please help us, anything you can send would help. I'm not sure how conversion rates work for PayPal, but I live in the US.
We're putting as much money to this as we can, but it's hard and it still won't be enough.
