I don't want to be put down...

Hi, my name is Smoke and I know I am a Pitbull, but please don't hold that against me. I am very loving and very kind. I am gentle, very happy, and love people and children. I have a torn ACL and need help. My owner is a great guy who rescued me... Here is my Story;

I was abandoned as a puppy and wondered the streets of California for a long time. I was lying on the side of the street near death when I was rescued by a family. I stayed with them for a year, but than they had to move and no one wanted me; so they dropped me off at the pound. I was rescued a second time from a woman in Arizona who knew my current owner and thought that we would be a perfect match. She was RIGHT.... My current owner has loved me like no other. We play all the time and unfortunately, I tore my ACL out of excitement. I need surgery and my owner cannot afford it. He has no idea his family and I have reached out for help. I am only 3 years old and am not ready to be put down. My owner is so "VERY" sad and it hurts me to see him this way. I don't want to lose him and he doesn't want to lose me. Can you help?

We promise to donate any money not used for the surgery and will keep you updated on my progress if you choose to help.

Thank you from the heart of a loving and gentle Pitbull.
