Save Our Loving Bushes

Bushes start in life was not that of a normal dog. He was found in the bushes very sick scared and starving. That’s when Kaaawa k-9 rescue was called to pick him up. Taking Bushes, I was very concerned of his survival. Getting the proper vaccines and the proper nutrition into him really made him come alive. For the past 14 months Bushes has been the best assistant I could ever ask for. When I get new rescues, he seems to know and understand what’s going on. He becomes the best comfort and offers the best guidance to the dogs coming in most are scared, insecure, aggressive or unsocialized. Some are even injured but that doesn’t matter to Bushes he is there for all of them. He goes righto work and makes the new dogs feel comfortable. My line of work you have to love all dogs, but not get too attached to any one dog. Bushes is the only one that changed how I feel about that. He has grown so close to my heart as well as the hearts of many other people and dogs. Bushes has been doing all of this while living in pain. When he was 4 month old his legs became extremely stiff his front leg started turning out and he became increasingly inactive. We then got x-rays done with Windward Community College and we were able to determine Bush's had a bone disease and was already showing signs of hip dysplasia . He experienced very high fevers from the time he was 4 months old until about 10 months old from the inflammation in his joints. He has a condition that requires a FHO surgery. What that means is his upper leg bone, his femur needs to fit in the socket of his hip so he can walk normally. Right now, it’s very painful for him to walk, and you know how it is the older we get the more pain we feel. Surgery cost and recovery fees are around $5000.00, I have saved up close to $1200.00, leaving me short about $3800.00. He must get this surgery set for Jan. 30 2018 the longer it goes on the worse it gets is why he needs the surgery right away. Please will you donate to the care and wellbeing of Bushes he is a very amazing and special dog that needs our help, and we can’t let him down. Donate to the Bushes fund and please do come back and watch him progress after his surgery. We will keep you all updated on his progress so you can see how your donations have helped Bushes. I want to thank everyone who took the time to read about this amazing dog I have been blessed with, and how we as humans can help make life so much better for another. Thank you so much for your help and support. DONATE DIRECTLY to Bushes Call VCASpecialty Center 808-484-9070 Kaaawa K-9 rescue Founder, President Michelle Cooley
