She has recently torn her right hind leg ACL.   The operation is going to cost about $5,300.  The up front cost is $4,100. Fortunately Next Step Service Dogs, the amazing organization that I got Rowa from, offered to help with some of the cost.  So I am looking for to raise $3,500 to help Rowa get this much needed surgery. 

She loves to play fetch and often times brings the chuck-it stick to me so that I can throw the ball with it.  The past month and a half she has not been able to run due to the injury and gives me the sad face because she wants to play so bad.  She is not a fan of bed rest. Although after 8 weeks of recovery after the surgery, she will be able to play again.

A huge thanks to anyone who can help out my beautiful girl.  God bless.
