My story is long but necessary! Please read all the way to the end.

I am asking for help for our friend John Friedenthal, his daughter Roxanne Friedenthal and their beloved pittie Dottie.

John adopted Dottie three years ago she’s not just a dog she IS a member of the family! She's 5 years old and has many good years in front of her.

On Friday, September 7th after finishing their work John's gardner's left the gate to the yard open and Dottie got out!! A dog owners worst nightmare!

This is John's story...

A neighbor knocked at our door at 7:30 and said to us”your dog was just run over on Winnetka Ave. My heart dropped and I thought I would throw up. Roxanne and her 15 month old son, they live with me, drove to see Dottie. I saw her lying in the street surrounded by maybe six people kneeling beside her and petting her and talking to her, they brought blankets and towels for her to lay on. We were in shock!

We drove Dottie to McClave Veterinary a 24 hr emergency Vet. Dottie was in shock and not moving.  (she had run across the street and ran into the side of a fast moving car. The driver stopped and went back.) 

At McClave she received IV, X-rays and all other emergency measures. She spent 2 nights there and then we took her to Valley Specialist of the Valley in Woodland Hills. They have a Neurologist on staff. She received an MRI and all kinds of tests. She spent two nights there at over $500.00 a night. The Neurologist said we should take Dottie back to McClave because they can now do what they are doing which is physical therapy every 4 hours, etc. She has been there ever since .

Dottie has a TBI (traumatic brain injury).
Bruising and bleeding in the spinal cord. They say it is a blood clot in her spine which is causing the problems and that it is like a stroke in terms of recovery possibilities and it will take time time time! Her right front leg is suspected to be possible torn nerves. Through it all she has made small amounts of progress every day and her prognosis is positive.

John says....We want nothing more than to have her home! My daughter has a 16 month old child and we are not able to give her physical exercise and turn her EVERY 4 hours, give her medication, feed and water her and express her Bladder!

John's bills are now over $15,000.00 and growing! Soon Dottie will need to go to a rehabilitation facility which will be very expensive per day. The costs just keep going up and up, day by day.

John, "We can not and will not put a dollar value on our baby."

Thank you all so much for your interest in Dottie's recovery. We are looking forward to your donations and THANK YOU in advance for your generosity!!! 

Please continue to pray for Dottie and her family!❤❤

MIRACLES ARE HAPPENING!!
Dottie update...
Dottie stood on her own and was able to take a couple of steps!! This is the 3rd time she's been able to stand on her own. Remember it has just been two weeks yesterday that the accident took place. 2 weeks ago no one thought she'd walk again! She's making progress however there's still a long road ahead of her to full recovery.

To date we've raised $2185.00! This is TERRIFIC and Dottie and her family are beyond GRATEFUL!! It is helping so much with Dottie's medical bills.

Rehabilitation starts Monday and so do more bills for Dottie's family.

We know that money can be tight. As little as $5.00, $10.00 or if you're fortunate enough to afford a $100.00 or more it doesn't matter, whatever you can donate is greatly appreciated!
We're still $32,000.00+ away from our goal, so PLEASE anything you can donate is GREATLY APPRECIATED!

PLEASE continue to share the campaign far and wide so that we can bring Dottie HOME!

With Gratitude THANK YOU!!

DOTTIE NEEDS MORE OF YOUR HELP.....
At the close of today (9/17/18) we've received $1,905.00 in donations!! That is FANTASTIC! THANK YOU all that have donated and shared the campaign. We are still over $33,000.00 from our goal.
Dotties next move is to go to a Rehabiltation facility. The initial evaluation is $290.00. Each overnight stay is $135.00 per night and each Rehabiltation session is $135.00 - $205.00!! THE FINANCIAL BURDEN IS GROWING BY THE DAY!!
Each day Dottie is improving, but it is a long slow process. A week and a half ago Dottie could not move at all. Today she's moving around and trying her best to get to the point of being able to stand.
PLEASE continue to share our campaign and ask those you share with to please share it as well.
Dottie and her family are so so GRATEFUL for your continuing prayers and donations!
