Help Ducati Walk Again- second knee

Ducati is our beautiful 2 year old dog that was diagnosed with bilateral torn anterior cruciate ligaments (both ACLs are torn). In March 2014 she had sergury on her right knee and is currently going through physical therapy at home. Ducati can now enjoy short walks and play for a short period of time. The stronger her right leg gets the weaker the left. I'm ready to have our happy, healthy and very entergetic baby back, with all the love and support of our friends and family I know we will find a way to cure her left knee. 

She still can't get up or walk without great difficulty. She still needs surgery on her left knee so that she can live comfortably while enjoying the activities she once loved.

January 2014:
All dontations recieved will go directly for her surgery. 
We have already done a lot of diagnostics. We started with looking at her hips and noticed she has hip dysplasia, after some time I noticed she wasn't bearing normal weight on her left hind leg. We continued to test for Valley Fever, that came back negative but we tried the medication anyway and didn't see any improvements. Next sedated her palpated her knees and we sent the fluid out from her knee to make sure it wasn't bacterial. The last test was to make sure she doesn't have tick fever, test came back negative. Recently we saw an orthopedic surgeon that confirmed both ACLs are torn and she will need surgery on both knees ASAP.
