Help Ivan the Puppy Walk Normally!

Ivan is an incredibly sweet & strong 10 month old chihuahua puppy that is in desperate need of your help! He was rescued from a hoarder’s house in Modesto, CA together with 7 other dogs.

He was thankfully given a new lease on life and taken in by Rescue the Underdog (an organization that rescues at-risk dogs in the SF Bay Area in cooperation with CARES non-profit) and brought to stay in foster care together with another dog rescued from the same home.

He has a fractured left arm along with a dislocated elbow in the same arm making it impossible for him to put weight on his arm. He also has malalignment in his left back leg making it very challenging for him to walk with 3 serious injuries on one side of his body. 

After a visit to a specialist doctor, we learned that these issues can be repaired but will require costly surgeries (the first of which has been completed).  While he's recovering from the first surgery, he has ONE more to go!  

Therefore, WE NEED YOUR HELP to raise the money as his medical care will cost approximately $5,400.

Despite all of the challenges Ivan has faced in his short life, he doesn’t let that stop him from playing with his foster brothers and sister and learning to trust humans again!

He is doing well in foster care and is looking forward to receiving his next surgery so he can regain the use of his left arm and left leg and finally start enjoying life the way every puppy deserves to.  

Please donate and share!  Thanks so much!  ~ The Rescue the Underdog / CARES Team!
