Hope's Medical Bill Fund raiser

Hope is an amazing rescued Pitbul, who in her short life have suffered so much abuse, she arrived at in our home December 2017 as an mange riddled, emaciated, petrified pup with a prolapsed uterus. Closer inspection by a vet showed that this poor angel was used as a breeding machine until she could no more, then her teeth where filed down so she could be a bait dog for fighting. She was also infected with canine transmissible venereal tumor (CTVT) and 2 hernias.

With all this on her plate she still chose to trust us, and allowed us to love her. Weeks and months of treatments, prodding & poking, loads of good healthy food, pampering loads of love and our very poorly little skeleton blossomed into a gorgeous loving pup.

Because of her start in life she is prone to contracting the strangest diseases and infections, but we have always made sure she has the best medical care (at great expense, may I add).

Hope is an absolute fun loving pup and her whole life revolves around playing, since we introduced her to some toys. Has a few favourite toys but her purple egg that she plays Hope football with is by far the ultimate toy.

Unfortunately, tragedy struck again in our sweet girls life, while playing she injured her left cranial cruciate ligament, or CCL (back leg knee ligament) poor little Hope is great amounts of pain from the injury, but worse for her, she can't play with her toys.

We can have a very expensive and very invasive and painful operation done on her to fix it (something we cannot afford) or we can get an orthotic knee brace for her, same healing time, less expensive, and less invasive.

We opted for the orthotic option, but we still need some financial help. We are short of $350. Please help us raise this for this awesome dog, whose name says it all. We pledge that any funds we raise over and above what we need for her we will donate to one or more of the amazing animal shelters around us.

Have a look at the videos and photos of our sweet angel. Some of them are terrible but most of them are of the amazing puppy child she grew into. This is a link to the video of how she look when she was captured, be careful it is not for sensitive viewers. https://www.facebook.com/Hope-the-rescue-pup-14649...

From the bottom of our hearts we ask you assist us in helping our darling Hope.

Here is a small image of the type of brace we are hoping to get for Hope.
