Mugen on Wheels

My dog, Mugen's hind legs stopped working.

Because of this, he has a hard time urinating and defecating. However, the Vet said the xrays showed his bones are still in place. It's not a slipped disc. They said he has a good chance of recovering from this and he's seen it happen before.

Mugen is in SF with my father, who is a retired and disabled USMC veteran.  Mugen is his service dog.

Unfortunately, my dad lives in a trailor van, so he needs to put him in a daycare. It's very hard for him to take care of a disabled dog alone. I can't help him because I live in SoCal for school. 

My father was about to put him down until Mugen showed signs of recovery: 
- He still has reflexes in his legs
- He still has the urge to chase balls 
- He still asks for walks by dragging his legs to the door 
- He is still Mugen. (he's full of life)

I want to help him and raise money for: 
- His Xrays (est: ~$400-$500)
- His medicine: steroids and inflammatory pills (~$400)
- Wheels so he can walk again! (~$500)
- Follow up visits
- Daycare temporarily 

If my dad can't take care of Mugen in this state, he plans to put him down. I know he very much does not want to. He is my buddy who I personally rescued from the SPCA. Mugen is very important to me. If you can help, Mugen can get the care he needs until he may be able to walk again. Thank you for reading 

Here is some Mugen art and pictures of him.
