(CLICK ON UPDATES FOR MORE DETAILS, AS WE'VE HAD TO HAVE 3 MORE SURGERIES ON TOP OF HIS FIRST HIP REPLACEMENT DUE TO SOME TERRIFYING COMPLICATIONS AND NOW IT LOOKS LIKE A FOURTH AS OF THE 14TH OF DEC. ITS COST US A LOT MORE THAN WE ENVISIONED AND HAS PUT OUR DOG AND US THROUGH A LOT OF PAIN. Any help is appreciated...)
This is Bailey, he is a sable Rough Collie. Bailey is only 7 months old and has been with us for around 5 months now. Bailey is apart of our family and we couldn't have fallen more in love with him. From morning to night he lights up our world. We don't know what we would do without him as our love for him is endless.
Unfortunately we've just found out our baby boy is suffering with severe hip dysplasia on both sides. Hip dysplasia is an abnormal function of the hip socket, his bone isn't in the socket properly causing him constant pain with his back legs. Bailey struggles daily getting up and down, his back legs give in causing him to fall, he hasn't been able to jump up and down from chairs etc, and daily tasks such as going to the toilet are painful due to the placement of his hips and how he stands. Without help Bailey's struggle will only worsen, causing lameness and arthritis very soon, giving him a short life. We don't want to lose our baby and we can't handle knowing he's suffering.
Bailey needs to have 2 surgeries, months apart on his hips with around 3 months of recovery needed in between. He will be undergoing two hip replacement surgerie's as neither hip can be saved. Unfortunately these surgeries are extremely expensive, and we have been quote approximately $11,000+. Bailey is our world and we would do anything for him and are definitely wanting to give him the surgeries that he desparately needs. Unfortunately the cost is nowhere near our reach. However even a little bit of help with the payment would be so very appreciated. We wouldn't be asking unless we desparately needed the money to keep him pain free and able to walk.
Bailey is the most playful, energetic puppy and his personality amazes us, we love him to the moon and back and could not imagine our lives without him. It saddens us deeply to watch him deteriorate and struggle and hope we can provide him with the surgeries he urgently needs in the next few weeks.
