This is Noble’s fund to walk. The funds will go towards his surgeries and medical related expenses. Thank you for your support!

Please help Noble enjoy his dog hood-life. He has been diagnosed with a ruptured Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) on his right hind leg and hip dysplasia and the only treatment is surgery – a surgery that we cannot financially afford.

The anterior cruciate ligament is a connective tissue which, together with the posterior cruciate ligament, prevents the end of the tibia and femur from moving across each other causing unnecessary pressure and friction. A dog with a ruptured cruciate ligament will suddenly appear lame and avoid putting the affected leg on the ground. The surgery procedure is called tibial tuberosity advancement (TTA). This is a surgery where a different portion of the tibia is cut, and allowed to heal at a different angle to change the mechanical stresses on the joint, estimated cost over $3500.

Hip dysplasia is an abnormal formation of the hip socket that, in its more severe form, can eventually cause crippling lameness and painful arthritis of the joints. The surgery procedure is called Adipose Stem Cell, which they say is one of the inexpensive and miraculous procedures with the use of stem cells, estimated cost still over $3000.

So, what does this mean for this young 3 year old Rottweiler…possibility not being able to walk? We truly hope this will NOT be the case; he is too young to go through this kind of pain and it breaks our hearts to see him walking on three legs. He’s a big dog (145 lbs) and a lot to carry. According to the vet, the longer we wait to repair the ACL can lead to other damages to his other hind leg. To make matters worse, his hip dysplasia is worse on the left side, where he’s carrying all the weight, causing more aggravation.

Noble is a loving, sweet, and one smart dog and we would love for him to continue to experience a good dog life. We want to continue to go on walks, take him to the dog park, take him to the beach, and most importantly not be in pain.

Any money raised will go towards Noble’s medical needs. And, any donation that is not used will be donated to another animal in need.

If you have any questions or need to contact me, please send me an email at nenelym@yahoo.com.
All your generous contributions, thoughts and prayers are deeply appreciated!!

Thank you so much!
Mylene, Del Lakai, and Noble
