My name is Nu-Nu and I'm a 4 year old Pit Bull X Staffie. My mommy adopted me from TEARS Rescue Organisation in 2015 and I've been a very happy and spoilt doggy since. In June 2016, while playing with my ball in the park, I damaged my cruciate ligament very badly and had to have surgery which cost my mom in excess of R30 000,00. The rehab work was very hard but I had fun during Hydro Therapy as I love the water and I looked like a Harley Davidson Biker when I got to wear the protective eye glasses during laser therapy.
Two days ago, I was playing with my tug toy and I jumped up high to grab it (I'm very good at jumping) but I landed funny and I've fractured my tibia (leg bone) on the same leg as my previous operation. Mom is very upset because she is so worried about me and doesn't have the money to pay for rehabilitation and possibly another operation.
I need 6 weeks rest, rehabilitation work and need to go see a specialist to make sure my cruciate & knee is not damaged. I love my mommy and I'm stressed out. I really want to play ball & tug-of-war again, I love my long walks and I really want to swim in the ocean again! Please can you help me. Any amount will help towards my rehabilitation work and possible surgery.
Mom says that she's going to give any excess money to the SPCA or Animal Physical Rehab to help other dogs in the same situation as me.
