Buddy is a wonderful dog and we need to raise money for his medical expenses so we can keep him with us. Please help.

Buddy is a beautiful Golden Retriever who just celebrated his 7th birthday. He is as smart as he is dumb, but precious and wonderful.

A few weeks ago he began limping, which is not surprising the way he is constantly jumping. Just days later he started having so much trouble getting up that we had to take him to the emergency room. The doctor said Buddy had a torn ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament) and would need surgery. As we were getting his tests done in preparation for the surgery the xray showed evidence of cancer.

On Monday, May 9, 2011, Buddy had a complete workup to determine the type and extent of the cancer so we can make a decision about his future. We really want to get Buddy through this and have him around for years to come. During any other time in our lives it would have been a done deal--get the surgery and treatment and pray that Buddy would be strong enough and lucky enough to have many more years with us.

Unfortunately, as much as we love Buddy, our decision will have to be based on finances. We have been out of work for some time and other family members are unable to help as they too are currently unemployed. I have spent countless hours on the internet and making phone calls looking for financial assistance for his medical expenses.

Giveforward is my last resort.

It was estimated the cost for the workup, amputation, chemotherapy and radiation would be over $10,000.00. We simply do not have the means to help Buddy so we are reaching out for help. Reaching out to everyone, especially pet lovers and pet owners who have lived through this painful ordeal.
