I spoke with the surgeon, Dr. Wright last week and Roxy is scheduled for surgery on Tuesday, March 13. She has to stay at the animal hospital until Friday, March 16 for observation to make sure she does not get any infection and that she is getting along good and they also do some physical therapy with her. My baby's little leg will be good as new soon
I set up a PayPal account for donations towards Roxy's surgery, if you would like to donate please go to
My email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
GASOW VETERINARY HOSPITAL is also now willing to accept Credit Card donations by phone, the money will be credited to Roxy's account there, their phone number is (248) 644-7171
If you do make a credit card donation by phone please tell them it is for Melissa Duncan and Roxy at 9266 Hillcrest
So far we have received $717.00 in donations for Roxy's surgery, thank you so much everyone for your generous donations and for reposting this for Roxy, you do not know how much we appreciate it and I cannot say thank you enough!!!! I am so thankful that there are so many loving and caring people out there!!!!
Here is the update on Roxy:
Roxy and I just got back from seeing the orthopedic specialist on Monday 1/29 morning and she does in fact need surgery, she saw Dr. Wright at Gasow Veterinary Hospital, he has been a surgeon for 30 years and he is a very nice doctor, he even sat on the floor with Roxy and gave her a good scratching. The procedure he performs is called nylon prosthesis to repair ACL ruptures which is exactly what Roxy has. The surgery would cost about $2,000
I don't want to have to set up this fund, but I have never had to ask for donations before, but right now my finances are not so great and I can't afford to pay for this surgery on my own. I've explored other options to come up with the funds, but unfortunately, they did not work out to our advantage. Roxy will be 9 years old on April 15 and I never thought anything like this would ever happen to her. She has always been such a healthy girl, but just running down the stairs after a toy at home is what caused this. Right away I noticed her limping just after coming back up the stairs and could tell that she was feeling discomfort. I took Roxy to her vet and she spent the day there to have x-rays taken. When I picked Roxy up the doctor showed me the x-rays and where she had hurt her leg and also where the arthritis has settled in Dr. Hutchinson, her doctor, told me it looked as though she will require surgery and I was hoping and praying that she did not need it, but Tuesday the orthopedic specialist told me that she does need the surgery to correct the ACL rupture.
Roxy came into my life when I rescued her at 8 weeks from a backyard breeder known to fight his pitties. From that moment on I always promised her I would do anything for her. I could not live with myself if she spent the rest of her years not being able to walk correctly and in pain because of the injury she sustained and I would do anything in the world for my little Angel, I love her with all of my heart and she is my best friend in the world.
I am respectfully asking you to help me get my Roxy the surgery she needs to keep her healthy. Anything you can give, whether it's just a dollar or taking a minute to repost this for Roxy, is so very much appreciated.
Thank you everyone for keeping Roxy in your thoughts, it means a lot to me
Melissa & Roxy

NETWORKED...SUCH A SAD SITUATION FOR INNOCENT DOGS WHO HAVE SERVED OUR
This is an opportunity to own an extremely well
trained dog that was valued last year at $12,000 each.
PERMISSION GIVEN TO CROSSPOST
If you read the posts below, you will hear
the story of how 26 German Shepherds and/or Malinois
are to be EUTHANIZED after 5 years' service of bomb
detection in Afghanistan. The dogs are owned by a
private contractor and obviously, there are no
parameters for preventing wanton misuse and abuse of
these dogs. He is most likely retiring them because
he will be getting more money to put new dogs in to
At present, I have a friend working with a friend at
the GAP - Gifted Animal Program, to set up an angel
network to get these dogs out. The guy at GAP says he
can rehome all 26 dogs. However, the "contractor"
says it will cost $2,000 each to fly these dogs out of Afghanistan.
So I am begging for anyone who has connections for:
If anyone has access to any of the above related
resources, please please contact me immediately. It
isn't long until Saturday comes and these dogs' time

Visiting it, and seeing what others share brings a sense of peace and purpose to my day. Her post of Indian Totems was full of wisdom that gave interesting insights into others, and the culture from which it came. Thank you Krystyna.
