Help Leo Walk

Four years ago I went to a worn down shelter to “just look” at the pups that needed homes. I went outside and out ran a litter of 6 puppies. A curly haired collie was in the back, walked right up to me, kissed me on the face and ran off to join his brothers and sisters. A giant jug caught his eye and he growled and pounced right into it - getting quickly stuck he panicked and ran right into me, whimpering. I pulled jug from his head and fell in love knowing he was going to be my new forever friend.

Over the last four years, we have shared many memories: Long walks to the fridge to share peanut butter, ball throws, and being a really good boy. He has moved with me all 6 times in the last 4 years, growling at all the strangers that step onto his yard without haste.

It was all fun and games, until recently: Leo was chasing the neighborhood squirrel and unfortunately, dislocated his knee and completely tore his ACL.

The funds I am raising will go to the total cost of his surgery. I’m hoping to raise enough to get his surgery scheduled this month.

Please don’t let the squirrel win by donating today to help Leo walk again! :)
