I adopted parker 1 month ago from the Santa Monica Humane society. He is a 1 year old HUGE German Shepard. He is the nicesest fun loving creature I have ever met. Unfortunately, I was not informed that he had a broken hip when I rescued him. Getting this amazing creature with a remarkable love for everything/everyone the surgery he needs to be happy and free of pain is a no brainer. But of course, it is very expensive and I have half the funds necessary to get the proper procedure that will result in a full doggy dog life (total hip replacement) . While there are other options, they would leave him lame and with permanent dissabilities I am trying to provide him with the life he deserves. Please help us get parker a new hip so he can start living like a 1 year old pup should.
Bellow are some videos of Parker being the hilarious maniac he is. Additionally there is an x-ray of his very serious injury which we are told has existed for sometime. Likely due to a car accident or physical abbuse.
Take note his left femur head. The bone on bone rubbing causes a great deal of pain. Furthermore the injury has cut off blood flow to the bone in his leg stunting its grown relative to the other limb.
