Help Denver Walk Again!

Denver is our sweet pup that has lost her ability to use her back legs. It is called IVDD; a common degenerative disease for her breed. Essentially, she has a disc that is pressing on her spinal cord which has paralyzed her back legs. She needs to have surgery in order to give her the chance of walking. We have exhausted our ability to pay for this, and are working to pull together other fundraisers. In the meantime, we are focusing on pain management and giving every effort to keep her spirit up. It has been a lot of work having to make her manually go the bathroom and keeping her hydration up with the medications, but we are dedicated and willing to do whatever it takes. The longer the surgery is put off, the less chance she will have to walk again. 

Denver is very loved by her little family and friends, and still has so much life left! Her personality is so sweet and energetic and it has been difficult to see her not getting to jump around or chase squirrels. She is not even barking at the mailman!! Denver has brought so much joy to my son and myself and we love her more than words could ever express.

In a year of financial difficulties for many, we hope to pull together for this peanut, even if that means just sharing our fundraiser. We appreciate the support from the bottom of our hearts.

With love and gratitude,
Shawna, Hatch, & Denver
