Help Bubba run freely again (ACL)

After today's vet visit it has been determined that my sweet Ollie/Bubba Boy will in fact need surgery to repair his completely torn cruciate ligament. For those of you who know this Big Love Bug you have watched over the last 2 weeks as I crated him in hopes of it healing on its own to no avail. His limp is much more marked now and the longer we wait the worse off his other leg will become. I am not made of money, most of you who know me know this. However, I will do anything in my power to help my boy. He is currently under the care of Dr. Michelle Sanders at Lincoln Veterinary Plaza off Van Buren in Riverside. I will attach their info so you can call to confirm that this is in fact his diagnosis. If you wish to donate, we would both be forever grateful. Whatever I cannot raise, I will be selling items in my storage unit and anything else I have of value. I am also thinking about doing a group dog training lesson at JackBoys Dog Bakery in Corona with all proceeds going to my boys surgery. You can get dog lessons and some fresh all natural dog treats. If anybody has any other ideas I would love to hear them. My dogs come first and always will. Thanks so much for taking the time to read this.

Hoping to raise enough money to have surgery in February. That gives me 31 days to make this work. Please share this with your friends and lets help get my big boy back on his feet. Lincoln Plaza is his office
Dr. Sanders is his doctor. (This is where the surgery will take place as it requires an orthopedic specialist)

He loves to stand in the swimming pool like a human.

He is definitely PURE LOVE. I LOVE this boy

There is a new sheriff in town. look at this face.

Hopefully he will be well by summer so he can return to dog beach

He had a great 5th Birthday. Such a ham

he loves dog beach and I love him

He loves the pool and has no problem just jumping right in
