Tidus the Gentle Akita

This is Tidus. He is my best friend and has been there for me through thick and thin. Kids love playing with him because he is so soft and cuddly.

For the past few weeks he has been limping, so I took him to the vet to get some xrays. Tidus was born with hip dysplasia, but it hasn't really affected him until now. Both hips need to be operated on.

What's even worse, is that both knees are going bad too. The vet says that it will only get worse the longer I wait to operate on him.

Tidus is only 3 years old and has plenty of life left, I don't want to give up on him. The four surgeries will cost around 12000. I kindly ask you for any donations, so that he can continue playing with his best friend(my other dog), family and friends.
