We at Southern AZ Golden Retriever Rescue see a lot of sad stories and turn them into happy endings (complete with tail wags). But we just took in a young boy, only 7 months old, who needs total hip replacements. His pelvis is malformed due to genetic issues.
Walter was purchased at a petshop and is almost surely a puppy mill dog. The sad young family who had purchased him with hopes of many years of companionship simply couldn’t afford the surgery and rehabilitation he will need to lead a normal life. They gave him to us, knowing we would make sure he got the best of care so that he could live many happy years without pain.
Currently – at only 7 months he is on painkillers and walks oddly. Playing like a normal pup is almost beyond him. He would love to be able to run and jump like the pup he is. Please help us to keep our promise to Walter and restore him to health. The cost for his surgery alone is estimated at $10,000 and then there will be rehabilitation costs in addition.
Walter White is named for a character in the show Breaking Bad.
