Dakota Fund

As most of you know, Dakota has been battling Intussusception. A condition where your intestine folds into itself creating severe abdominal pain and requiring surgery to fix. First and foremost, I want to thank everyone who has been so supportive with the outpouring love and concern for our baby girl, who is a 5 month old Weimaraner. It has been a rough 3 weeks on her recovery journey. She lacks an appetite and is severely malnourished and underweight. Watching her regain what strength she has left has been so heart breaking. This past weekend, we noticed similar symptoms and rushed her into the emergency. New X-Ray scan shows the Intussusception is back, but in a different location on her intestines. Dakota went into a 2nd surgery yesterday on June 18th. Her primary vet said this one was far worse than the first one. He had to remove a large portion of her small intestine which caused her to lose a lot of blood. We are praying our girl fights through this. We weren’t prepared for the 1st surgery, and definitely not the 2nd surgery, on top of all the ER visits, diagnostic tests, and medication. A friend of mine suggested to start a dog crowdfunding campaign . So we are using this platform to do so in the event anyone wants to help out with Dakota’s recovery journey.  We have a long road ahead of us! We are praying this Intussusception doesn’t come back a 3rd time. We ask that you please continue to pray for her. Thank you all again so much! This community has been so great to us. We love you all so much! 
-Dakota & Fam
