This is the Support Bosworth fund. Funds will be used for his medical costs and related expenses.

UPDATE: As many of you know, I have had to make the decision to give up my puppy to a vet in Middlesex, Vermont after his surgery in NYC 2 weeks ago. This whole process has been emotionally draining and heart breaking. Though Bos is no longer my pup, I still do have vet bills from those first few weeks he was home. I am about 40% to my goal of $2,200 and hope to gain a little more traction in the coming days. My campaign for raising funds ends on Tuesday, July 31st.

Also, I am planning a 5K for the Bosworth fund. This will take place in early September in Burlington, Vermont and all funds raised will cover the remaining vet bills I have endured and will go to All Breed Rescue Shelter in South Burlington (who paid $13,000+ for his surgery in NYC).

______________________________________________
Several weeks ago, I adopted a 12 week old puppy that I thought was happy and healthy. After my first vet visit shortly after the adoption, I learned that this was not the case. My puppy Bosworth was just diagnosed with a hepatic arterial venous malformation in his liver. This malformation is causing his blood stream to carry toxins that are being pumped throughout this little body which are effecting his lifestyle (both physically and mentally). My pup is lethargic, having trouble breathing, not eating or drinking, and is not very playful at all. I hate to see him like this.

Over the past few weeks, we have been in and out of the animal hospitals going through a number of tests. In addition to the tests, he was admitted into the hospital (BEVS) last Saturday to be monitored and re-hydrated over night. After all of this, an ultrasound needed to be done to finally come to the diagnosis. A hepatic arterial venous malformation is extremely rare in large dog breeds. With all of the tests that he went through, we are now at a grand total of roughly $2,200 in vet bills, etc.

That said, the surgery he has to undergo cannot be done in the state of Vermont because of the equipment needed. He will need to go to an animal hospital in New York City for the procedure. This procedure is estimated to be roughly $4,000 (not including transportation). All Breed Rescue in South Burlington, where I adopted him, is going to try to cover all of the surgery costs but this leaves me $2,200 in debt.

This dog came into my life when I was in a time of need. He is an amazing pup with a great disposition. All of the vets, vet techs, and others that have met him fall in love instantly. He's the best thing that has happened to me despite the medical complications/bills. His surgery is going to be scheduled for the end of July, as he needs to be a bit older. Please keep Bosworth in your thoughts over the next month!
