Abel beat cancer & has lost part of his leg,this fund is for his prosthetic&physical therapy all funds will be used for this purpose

Hello Everyone,

Abel is a very loving Pittie who has been through the unimaginable in just a short two and a half months. He went from being a totally healthy dog to limping horribly and after many visits to the doctor he was diagnosed with an aggressive cancer in his rear left leg. With the help of some pretty amazing people , Abel’s life was saved and the vital operation he needed was done. However, Abel’s struggle is just beginning. Abel's entire leg was not removed he is missing the tarsal (ankle and foot) and he will be in need of a prosthetic leg before he trys to walk on it  (a.k.a Super Leg) as well as physical therapy. He does his best to walk, run, and play but it seems the impact of his missing leg is greatly impacting his happiness. Please aid in helping this amazing family dog to feel whole again.

As you know American Pit Bull Terriers are wonderful dogs and Abel is a shining example of this fact. He is a wonderful older brother to three beautiful children, one of which is an autistic child. Abel also plays a very pivotal roll in the family as he is also the best friend and source of comfort for his human daddy (who is a War Veteran of conflicts in the Middle East). Please find it in your heart to aid in any way you can. Our family has already spent every penny we can to get Abel to this point. We are massively in debt and can not afford to give Abel the “super leg” he needs and deserves. All funds will be used on Abel’s prosthetic as well as the physical therapy that will be needed for him to rebuild strength and master use of the “super leg”.
