Scout Needs Help!

The night of June 1, 2018, our dog Scout started to exhibit signs of loss of use of his hind legs. By the next morning, he was completely unable to stand on his own. After trips to the vet and the emergency vet, it was determined that Scout had a ruptured disc in his spine which caused severe bruising to his spinal cord, causing him to lose the use of his legs. He underwent a very costly surgery to help alleviate pressure on his spine. This surgery has a 50% chance of success. He’s still recovering and we don’t know the outcome yet, but the price of this has already been very high. Plus if the surgery isn’t successful, he may need a dog wheelchair. I’ve never asked for crowdfunding help before but I think this is a good time to start. I’ll post updates when I get them. Thank you!

Great news! Scout went back for his post-op recheck today. He can feel his toes!!! Got his sutures removed. Still a long way to go, as he can’t stand or walk on his own, but he is improving daily. Thank you for all your help and for keeping him in your thoughts.

One week since the surgery. Scout still can’t move his back legs, but he seems to have a bit more pep this morning. We put his harness on for a very short trip outside. Thanks everyone for all your help and continued healing thoughts.
Happy Scout + bonus background George

Hi everybody, Scout’s other human here. Thank you for helping our boy. We really appreciate your donations and shares and caring thoughts. Scout is being a very good patient, still on crate rest and lots of meds. No motor function or sensation in his hind quarters yet, but we remain hopeful. Tomorrow or Monday he’ll go back to the neurologist for a recheck. Thank you all.

Another quick update. Scout is taking his pills and relaxing in his crate. He’s been very good through all this and only time will tell if the surgery was a success. This will probably be the status quo for a while.

The main reason for this update is that I want to thank everyone who has donated to this campaign. Family, friends, acquaintances and complete strangers. Your generosity has been amazing and we are all grateful for it. If you can’t contribute financially, you can help by spreading the word and sharing the link on your social media accounts. Every little bit helps! Thank you!
