🐾🐾 Bruno's Story🐾🐾
Bruno is a loving 9 month old Lab & Golden Retriever mix. He came to Happy Tails Happy Homes through a Craigslist ad that just read “Dog.”
When we met him, we just knew that we had to take him & give him the life he deserves. We do not know the details of Bruno’s life before us, but we do know that he came to us not house broken, underweight & with atrophy in his hind legs & hips.
The previous owners said they did not have enough time for him.
Bruno loves everyone he meets & is such a sweet, loving dog. All he wants to do is be with people. He loves cuddling & will always greet you with a stuffed animal when you enter the room.
The first night he came to his Foster Mom’s home, she knew something was wrong. Bruno was constantly falling. His hips & hind legs were so weak that he struggled walking up the stairs. When standing or sitting for too long, Bruno would fall over & lay down. His hips were always stiff & he struggled to stand up.
For such a young dog, this was very alarming.
When we took Bruno to see the Vet, we knew it was more serious. An X-Ray was needed to figure out what was wrong. Sadly, the results were extreme hip dysplasia.
For a dog so young, who has a desire to be active & run, this was a heartbreaker.
Left untreated, young dogs who face hip dysplasia as severe as Bruno’s, live a life of extreme limitations & pain.
The Vets have recommended that Bruno would need surgery ( at a cost of over $5,000 ) in order to live a happy & pain free life.
Happy Tails Happy Homes is an organization that will do anything to help dogs & Bruno is no exception.
We believe that every dog deserves to live a happy & pain free life, but the cost of this surgery is beyond what we can afford on our own.
That is why we are reaching out for support to raise funds to help Bruno get the surgery he needs so badly.
Please consider helping Bruno with whatever you can afford.
Thank you so very much! 🐾💜
