Help Snooki - Pugs Spine Back legs

Hi Guys and hopefully fellow pug lovers. 

Before I start I just want to say This is       something that I never wanted to                consider but due to my own stupidity       and not preparing for the worse I am in
this situation....  a situation that I’m
embarrassed about being in. 


Growing up as a non dog lover, I was
terrified of dogs TBH and a pug obsession   (after meeting a friends pug)  led me to 
Purchase my first ever little fur baby       without a second thought or even
properly researching the breed. I can’t     say I regret this as I may have not went    ahead and even got my little diva.  The      last 8 years of owning Snooki have             brought nothing but joy and taught me    so much in compassion and made me a   much better person I actually find it hard to even imagine what life was like              without her in it.  Like many I became thetypical dog dad always banging on about his dog truly a mans best friend.  So this   Is what makes it even harder as I feel I’ve her down in life right now I’m not being   prepared for what many pugs seem to       Develop issue with. 

After 8 years of being pretty healthy just the usual vet trips although nearly lost.   her eye (hyper puppy stage). The last few
months have this has all changed.. after   her 1 millionth visit for her ears £70 a       time I know you fellow pug owners must feel my pain I asked for a scan as her leg  had started giving way and she was              becoming unable to get up the stairs,         jump on the sofa even struggling to get   back in the main door. I have been told     she needs to see a specialist as there         appears to be a disc missing between her spine and leg.  Obviously my answer was yes yes yes obvs let’s get this fixed ....then I was hit with it will cost anywhere£3000-£6000 maybe more. No worries my           insurance will cover that ... nope again       inexperienced dog owner! Turns out my   insurance only covers £3k leaving a large sum of money left to be
paid. The specialist won’t even look at      her without a payment of roughly £1000 to then determine the next steps. As the weeks have went on she has                           deteriorated rapidly, her daily walks haveturned non existent barley even managesto walk around the house, falls over and   is now pooping herself when she falls        over struggling to hold her bowl.  Should this be something I was prepared for yes, do I work yes but with  the virus I’m on   minimum hours with reduced salary and at this rate it will be next year before I     have enough savings to even possibly       cover the remainder of the costs. 

I’m looking for any donations at all in        helping her, it’s killing me watching her   being a shadow of her former self. All in a matter of months.  I have let her
down massively but please don’t let this  affect her, I’m calling for all Pug / Dog        lovers to help me and more importantly   her in any way possible. I need to raise as much  as possible to get her the help         needed ASAP!  

That’s my story and my plea for some        kind of help!!
