Bulleit’s Second Chance

Bulleit needs your help!
7-week-old boxer Bulleit is a rescue with a terrible back but a strong will to live. He was born with a birth deformity causing ‘kyphosis’, which causes his spine to curve forward and backward (as opposed to scoliosis that curves the spine side to side). His back is so severely deformed that it compresses his spinal cord. Since it is in his chest area, it causes weakness and a possible paralysis to his back legs. Despite all of this, Bulleit is an incredibly happy puppy who loves to play with his family (furry and non-furry) and has won their hearts over in just a few weeks.
Casey has rescued countless puppies, kittens and other furry friends over her years working at animal hospitals and vets. Rescuing animals comes at a high cost emotionally, physically and especially financially. Bulleit will be put on limited activity and cage rest (and a lot of snuggles) until he is ready for surgery. If he gets worse, Bulleit might need to get a brace to support his back. As soon as he is old and stable enough for surgery, his spine can be altered to relieve the pressure on his back. After the recovery he will most likely need a wheelchair.
All of this might sound like a train wreck to you but one look in Bulleit’s eyes is enough to realize he’s worth it and will live a happy life, even when bound to a doggie-wheelchair. The pure thought of putting this little sunshine down is devastating and considering that money is the only thing standing between Bulleit and a happy puppy life on wheels, we believe that he deserves a shot at life.
Please support this little puppy and his family by sharing their story and giving what you can. Donations will be used to help defer the costs of surgery, follow up and recheck appointments, xrays and a possible MRI, and eventually a wheelchair for this little guy. Thank you. 38250720_1554403001716613_r.jpeg38250720_1554403020516301_r.jpeg38250720_1555088118820496_r.jpeg

We are day two out of surgery and the doctors tell me he’s doing well. He’s still on lots of pain meds and they had to start a sedative to help keep him quiet. He has good feeling a motion in his hind legs which gives us about a 90% of him making a full recovery at this moment. The next two months are going to be difficult as he will really only be able to take a few steps at a time and will have to be as quiet as possible as his little spine heals. Thank you for all the prayers, thoughts, good vibes, and support through this journey ❤️ I miss my little man but he should be coming home in a day or two and I promise I’ll post pictures then; but for now here’s the first picture I ever saw of him, when he was just a wee little pup.

After a stressful 5 hours, I finally got the call the Bulleit is out of surgery and in recovery. The surgeon said he did well and now we just wait and see how well his function in his hind legs return. Tomorrow he will be very weak and probably unable to stand due to swelling around the spinal cord but in the days after his mobility should start to return and hopefully be better than it was before surgery. Thank you for all the happy thoughts and good vibes
