Ellie's Surgery

Ellie is the grand child fur baby of Sherman's Barkery. We found out today that she has a torn CCL which is the equivalent of a torn ACL in humans.  She is evidently in considerable pain and only surgery will correct the situation.

Ellie was rescued and then adopted by my daughter approximately a year and a half ago and has been loved and pampered.  Unfortunately, her life prior was pretty tough.  She had been living behind a strip mall and was pregnant with 9 puppies.  The rescue group tried to catch her but she wasn't very trusting of humans but they finally caught her.  She had heart worm, mange and her teeth were a mess because she had been eating rocks.  All but two of her puppies were born with birth defects and passed away.  She was severely underweight and nursed back to health by the rescue group but when my daughter adopted her, she was still heart worm positive and has been treated for that up until now. (We're actually waiting for the latest results on that; hoping that they're negative!)

Ellie is the sweetest dog.  I watch her regularly and for those of you who follow my Instagram account, you know that Phillip absolutely loves her and calls her his girlfriend.   I've never heard her growl or bark and all she wants is love. She took a little time but she's learned to be trusting of the humans around her.

My daughter and her fiancé are getting married later this year and a $3,000 vet bill is pretty tough to swing for a newly wed couple. If you can donate to help out, we'd be forever grateful.  If you are unable to, sharing this on IG, Facebook and twitter would be really appreciated.

Thank you. <3
