Hello everyone! I want to thank you all again for the support and donations. Dot is really trucking though and getting really tired of sitting in a crate all day... She just cant seem to understand why i dont let her hobble around :'D. She has managed to raise almost 1000 dollars toward her surgery. Today I more accurately reflected the portion I cant afford in the new goal. I realize its unlikely we will beat it and be able to put money to help other puppers. But in the event that we can and do I will be anything over what I need to help strays find new homes. In years passed you may have seen posts from me and my friend Natalie when we have found lost dogs and strays which need new homes. We've always done this out of pocket only requesting new homes cover anything they can. We've worked with lots of re-homing groups and love to see dogs find the best new homes. Natalie has been placed in charge of picking the group when and if any money can be donated.

Most importantly, I want to thank everyone whose helping with Dot in any way. I cannot show my appreciation enough and everyone who donated will get a thank you note from her. However I have to do it, she will get what she needs and be back on her feet, but it has been so wonderful to have the support of all of you and easing my stress so much. I encourage people to stop by Strong house Gym in Las Vegas where Dot usually hangs out on most weekdays around 4pm, grab a day pass have a workout and a puppy recovery with the unofficial mascot. You can always message me on Instagram @onijigen and follow to get updates with her progress as well.

Thank you again, You all have really made a huge difference in her and I's life.

More Info

Dot is the littlest Dachsihuahua with the biggest heart this side of the Mississippi and she needs help getting her feet back under her. Dot woke up today not able to really use her back legs and began dragging them around. Her face of confusion was enough for me to be scared. It could be spinal damage, nerve damage or who knows and we have a long process ahead of us. Imaging and everything could total me a lot more than i have to spare.Many of you know Dot and have held her, received kisses from her and simply brightened your day. She is the unofficial Gym mascot for The Strong house in Las Vegas and absolutely LOVES to wear her custom strong house vest. No matter what happens she wont stop loving and begging everyone for food with those huge eyes. Dot just needs enough to get her the help she needs and if we go over her needed expenses the rest will go directly to help other animals in need, like I said before, this isnt for me and I wouldn't even consider keeping any of it.

Update #2

we just got our call from the doctor and the good news, not cancer! the bad news its still likely pretty bad arthritis that seems to be pushing the femoral head out of the socket and we wont be able to get it in without surgery. A friend reached out to let us know that his wife works with a surgeon that can help us get a better price. we have to give t couple days to make sure the spine isn't an issue and then we will get into the surgery talk. I will be updating the goal amount to reflect more what we are looking at minus what I can afford when I find out.
Again I really appreciate all of you who donated and everyone whos putting the word out there. dots a tough cookie and we will get her back going. Please feel free to follow my Instagram by searching onijigen. I changed my bio pic to that of Dot to make it easy to find.

Update #1

Dot and I just returned from the vet, some xrays later, the vet discovered that her right hip is "a mess". You cant even make out the joint. We have to wait for the radiologist to look and give his opinion but there is a clear issue. it could lead to a very expensive and intense surgery :(
I will try to get the copies of the xrays emailed to me and post them too.
I just want to thank everyone whose donated again too. This will really help a lot.
