Hello everyone. I am Haylie Belts and my husband is Ryan Belts. About 4 months ago we got an addition to our little family. Her name is Kimber, a German Shorthair Pointer. From the moment we got Kimber is as impacted my husbands and my life so much. She is 100% my husband and my best friend. She brightens anyone's day from just looking at her tiny little face! Kimber is now 5 and 1/2 months old and loving life. Unfortunately, last night Kimber was hit by a car on Highway 702 in Eatonville, Wa. The person that struck Kimber with their car didn't attempt to stop or stay at the scene. Kimber is suffering from both her front legs being broken. Her right front leg is broke clean through her radius and her ulna. Her left front leg is broken right after her elbow at her growth plate. She is also suffering from two damaged teeth that will have to be removed. Kimber is going into emergency surgery shortly. I know that being this time of year it is right after the holidays not everyone can help out but a little will go along way. At the end of the day, Ryan and I are so thankful and grateful Kimber is still with us today and she is make a full recovery. Thank you to everyone in advance for the thoughts, prayers and donations. -The Belts Family

Hello Friends!

Just giving you guys another update. Kimber is getting better and better each day. Eating drinking and going potty. She is still a very happy puppy. You see her little tail wagging all the time.

She loves playing with her toys and chewing on her bones. We walk with her every once in a while to stretch her legs and to take her potty.
Even in this stressful time she still brings so much happiness and joy to our lives.

We are so close to our goal. All I ask is to keep sharing my posts and keep praying for our little girl.
This is a long road to recovery but she is doing so well with this all.

Thank you guys again for everything. Ryan and I couldn't do this without all the love and support from you all.

-The Belts Family ❤️

Hello everyone,

Just giving everyone an update. Kimber is doing good. She is finally sleeping and realizing she needs to stay down and rest. She is eating and drinking. We getting her up and help her stretch her back legs a little. She gets restless when she has been laying for long periods.

Just to let everyone know, Ryan and I found out Kimber is going to need a second surgery. In about 8-12 weeks she is going to need to get her plates, screws and pins removed in order for her to continue to grow properly. With that being said I put our goal at $4,000. Anything helps. Prayers and thoughts are greatly appreciated as well. My family and I can't thank you all enough!

We are so blessed that Kimber is still alive and with us today. I don't know what Ry and I would do without her!

Just a little update for everyone. Kimber is out of surgery and is on the road to recovery. She is very restless and isn't really able to sleep. We are trying to make her as comfortable as possible. Trying to do everything we can to make her not focus on her legs. Thank you to everyone for all the kind thoughts prayers and donations. My husband and I are beyond blessed to have such amazing people surrounding us!
