Bert's spinal surgery!


HELP SAVE OUR KING!!!

Nine years ago Bert came into our lives. He has continued to be the sweetest and most caring dog I have ever met, full of love and life everyone he meets loves him and he always gives kisses. Six months ago we got Leo at eight weeks(also a boxer who looks just like Bert) to keep Bert company and they instantly became the best of friends doing everything together. Last week on 2/4/14 I came home to find Bert unable to get up and walk. Every time he attempted to walk his toes knuckled under and he was unable to walk without assistance. We instantly took him to the vet and then to two different neurologist, all saying we have to get a MRI to determine the problem and then be prepared for surgery costing up to $8,000.
 
Update: due to huge outreach for bert we were able to get the MRI, determining that the issue is a slipped disc in multiple places. The next step is to get the surgery! 

Update: some things are just happen for a reason and we were able to get Bert's surgery today! We are continuing the fundraiser because the vet bill was $8,000 yikes!

PLEASE PLEASE!!!! help us raise the funds to keep our family together before any further nerve damage happens. The Surgery was needed yesterday! We need this ASAP!!
