Gino the 5 year old rescue dog needs life saving back surgery. 
27437756_15175408090_r.jpegJust seven months ago Gino was adopted to his forever home and now he is fighting for his life. His original owner had sadly passed away, and his new adopters got him after the devastating loss of their dog Bailey.  Gino now needs a surgery that is going to cost around 12,000 dollars to help save his life and walk again.  
The night before his injury, Gino was playing happily with his brother Jack but the next morning he was wobbly and crying when being picked up. Sadly just a few hours later Gino had lost the use of his hind legs and was rushed to the vet. After a few x-rays and tests it was determined that Gino had a ruptured disk that would need a VERY expensive surgery to fix him. His lovely dads Thomas and Rick are doing whatever they can to help him but financially cannot take the burden on alone. Thomas is currently dedicating his life to helping animals at a Southern California animal rescue and now needs help saving his rescue dog, Gino. 
Please help Gino in whatever way you can! We are trying to raise the money as soon as possible so Gino can snuggle and play with his dog and human family again!
