Save Our Nutters (Fund for surgery)

Peanut came into our life thru Little Paws Dachshund Rescue after a hard life at only about 1.5 years old. He was tied to a tree when the owners moved away. It was love at first site, our first "weiner". We took every precaution; built gates to block the stairs, bought a special low bed, fed him the natural raw diet. I know everyone thinks their babies are special but I can honestly say in my 47 years I’ve never had a dog more open to love and willing to trust after such trauma.  He has nightmares almost every day yet when we wake him its only love you see in his eyes. Our worst nightmare happened around July 4th this year. One day he just stopped being able to use his hind legs. We followed the crate and medication protocol yet he is slowly slipping away from us. His only chance to survive now is back surgery. locally (Baltimore) it costs about $9,500. We found a hospital in VA willing to do it for $3,500-5000 plus some other expenses. So far, we are about $800 in debt with ER visits and Medication. The trip to VA will take 10 hours round trip each visit. The plan is to have his daddy take off work next week to take him the specialist at Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary medicine. We must pay $2,500 that day we arrive. I’m hoping we can come up with that before he gets worse. He does not deserve to end his story here at only 2 ½ years old. Thank you so much for taking the time to read our story, any amount you can contribute or just love and prayers will be more than enough. Love, Teri, Stan, Nutters and his big brother Henry who sleeps beside his pen every minute of the day. There are our kids, our happiness, our everything.
