Bilateral Luxating Patella Surgery

Breed: French Bulldog/Chihuahua Mix
DOB: 2008
Sex: Spayed female
Foster home: Linda W

I use to walk really, really strange because my knees wouldn’t work the way they should.  Someone said my back legs looked like a cowboy’s legs.  And then they added that it was like a cowboy who hadn’t gotten off his horse for a year!  It was pretty bad.  You see, my silly kneecaps were sitting on the outside of my legs bones and got in the way of other bones.  Everyone kept talking about “luxating patellas” and I had to have surgery otherwise eventually I might not be able to walk at all!  I sure wanted to keep walking but I didn’t realize how much money it would cost for both of my knees to be fixed up.  I am a little nervous about coming up with enough dollars to pay the nice veterinarian for doing this for me.  If you would like to help, I would really appreciate any amount you can contribute!

I should be ready for adoption by mid July so if you are looking for a little dog who gets along great with other dogs, is pretty good on her housetraining, and loves to snuggle, you can apply to adopt me
