Nailah needs your help ! Reward : Endless wet-nosed kisses and unconditional puppy love .

Nailah, a seven month old Australian Shepherd puppy, was diagnosed with an ectopic ureter and an atrophied kidney.

The surgery she underwent on 6/9/11 required complete removal of her right kidney and ureter.

Nailah's options were few. Without surgery, she would have continued to suffer from chronic urine drip, causing repeated urinary tract infections and the dangerous risk of kidney failure in her (remaining) left kidney.

Nailah is an amazing puppy-- endlessly lovable and huggable, the most popular dog at the dog park: where she herds all the other dogs and starts a stampede; highly intelligent and more than willing to please. She loves all animals and people, her favorite being children.

It is my dream for her to one day be a therapy dog so she can spread the joy she brings out in people at retirement homes, children's hospitals, and rehabilitation centers.

Now that she has had her surgery, she will take time to heal, but ideally the veterinary visits will become less and less frequent. With a successful healing period, a low-protein diet and a lot of love, her super-powered left kidney will ensure she lives well into old age-- giving wet-nosed puppy kisses to everyone she meets !

A heartfelt thank you to all donors for helping me save Nailah's life. Words cannot express the gratitude I feel for the support in saving my best friend.

With Love, Ana.
