Maximus is a 4 yr old American staffordshire terrier. They don't come any sweeter. His problem is that both of his patellas slip out of the socket which causes the patella to wear through the cartilage allowing the patella to rub on the bone underneath which is very painful. Max was lucky enough to have many donors to cover this cost of one knee. This surgery was performed on June 5. Max is recovering nicely. He still needs to have the other knee repaired. Originally, the right knee was the worst and was supposed to be the first repaired. We received a call at 6:44am on the day of surgery from the veterinarian stating that when Max walked out of the kennel to have the surgery, he noticed that his gate was off. Upon taking x-rays he discovered that the left knee was now worse than the right and needed to be repaired first. Max is hoping and praying that there are more caring people who will donate for his second surgery so he will be totally pain free and can be Max!
