Tucker Needs Your Help!

6 month old Tucker is half German Shepard half Saint Bernard and a whollllllllle lot of sweetness. One morning last July (he was 2 months), he was enjoying himself on the windowsill while he could still fit (he loved the cool breeze) when he leaned too hard against the screen and fell 2 stories and hit the concrete. We took him to the vet where they ran blood tests and completed X-rays. They told us he was completely fine - in complete shock, but he was OK. No broken bones, no internal bleeding. We were so thankful!

Over the past month or so, Tucker has developed a limp and at times will whine at night until I rub his belly and he falls asleep. We took him to our normal vet and they confirmed that his hip is dislocated. This was not noticeable at the time because he was so small and his bones and muscles were still developing. We took him to a surgeon who confirmed he will need surgery. He goes in for more specialized X-rays this Thursday, which will cost us $500-$900 in addition to his surgery. We don't know how much surgery will need to be done but $2k is most likely the least it will cost.

If you know Tucker he is the most calm, sweetest, silly little boy out there who loves to run and tackle his big sister (Hanna, black lab), almost more than napping.
ANYTHING helps..skipping your latte for the day and contributing $5, $10, anything would be much appreciated. We would appreciate any financial help more than we could put into words.
