Hello, my name is Chamu, I'm a 6months old mini bull terrier from Costa Rica. I've got two parents, my mom and my dad who love lots and take care of me every day. They walk me daily and cuddle me at night, even when I have nightmares or my heavy ass decides to sleep on top of them. Last month I fissured the ligament in my right rear knee and cried as my parents had never heard before. They immediately took me to the vet to get a check-up. He said in a month I would be fine. But a month passed by and I was still limping. My parents knew there was something wrong and took me to another check-up. Doctor said the only way I could go back to play games and run around was getting surgery (which costs around $2000 including post meds, a cage for restrained resting and the surgery itself). Mom when crazy when she heard this and has been raising money for me ever since but it seems to not be enough. She's selling her art, canvas and making rifles to get make money but is afraid she won't make it. Doctor said if I don't get surgery soon I might get degenerative osteoarthritis and at one point they will need to put me to sleep because the pain will be unbearable. Please help me run again, I'm not the bully I used to be. I'm depressed must of the time, I'm destroying things (including my daddy's bed) and crying at night for attention. I can't even go out for a walk. A miss my old bully life. If you help me, mommy, daddy and I will be forever thankful to you.
- Love, Chamu
