Veteran's Companion Dog Cancer Fund

PANDORA, My Companion Dog

Has Breast Cancer and Is In the Fight for Her Life.

We have all seen a puppy “light up” the first time you meet them. Such was the case the first time my eyes met Pandora and I held her to my heart. She was so excited she literally jumped over my big malamute Zeus, my companion dog at the time and her future life partner. That was when my beloved Pandora was 6 months old. Today she is 12 and facing the fight of her life with a breast tumor and cancer. I rescued her, raised her, protected her, loved her and made her my companion dog. The rescue was reciprocal, for she helped guide me from being a homeless Vietnam Vet to a home owner!

She lives with me and her current companion 4 year old malamute Lobo. Lobo looks up to her, loves her and protects her. Pandora is safe and has a very loving and supportive home environment with a fully fenced acre+ space to roam, dig for gophers and lay under the starlight sky or sheltered on her bed in the house. Her marble blue eye reminds me of mother earth, her crossed black legs with white socks and gaze is heart warming and her lick on the hand and nuzzle is very sweet. “She is so sweet”, say all who meet her.

Both Lobo and I will be devastated if she dies under our watch. Pandora is scheduled for surgery on December 10, 2019 - please pray for her. We can’t afford the $2,500 plus dollars for surgery and recovery. We need to raise as much as we can. So far we have $350 and are short $2,150. Can you help us?

Thank You and Blessings.
