This is a fundraiser for my 4 year old Shiba Inu, Kohana. The funds collected will cover her corrective knee surgery.

Kohana is my 4 year old Shiba Inu. Besides causing as much mischief as she can, she enjoys lounging around the house mostly anywhere the sun can shine on her. Sometimes I call her my cat in a dog suit. Of course this is expected of the breed. She is fiercely independent and 100% adorable. Kohana is perhaps the most graceful dog I have ever encountered. She has always been able to leap up onto furniture effortlessly (like a cat) and prefers to lounge on the armrests. This dog has great balance. One of her favorite tricks is to balance up onto her hind legs, we call 'Circus', and earn a treat.
Recently we noticed that she would periodically pause and slowly bend her hind leg. At first we suspected a muscle spasm from playing too rough with her two cousins and sister dog but the vet noticed that her knee cap was slipping out and the X-ray that followed determined that she needed corrective surgery. Right now she has no evidence of pain and no signs of arthritis so we have a small window of time to get funds together to pay for the surgery. The money donated will go primarily to the cost of surgery, anesthesia, and medication.
I thank you for taking the time to read about my sweet little girl and for your donations.
If you have any questions about the surgery or just about Kohana please contact me, Lisa Weaver, at my email:
