I'm cross posting this from The Bullie Board, as little bruno needs all the help he can get!! Bruno is current with Jan of PoshPussRescue, and definatly deserves a helping hand in life. Heres his story..... Bruno is the tripod dog who is the mascot dog for Bully Befrienders. It is thought that he was originally used as a bait pup in a dog fight. He has been with me here for a few months and has improved dramatically in spirit and is actually enjoying life but Bruno is walking on a knife edge. Sadly, x rays on Bruno's one remaining front leg have indicated a shocking prognosis. The bones in the leg itself are not properly fused after what appears to have been a breakage of some eighteen months ago. This would certainly coincide with the date of his amputation. To complicate matters the amount of arthritic degeneration in the leg makes any surgical work almost impossible. My regular vets said surgery would not be possible and the only thing Bruno could be helped with was a prescription for pain killers. I have had the radiographs sent to Fitzpatrick Referrals in Surrey and there is a chance that Noel Fitzpatrick can help Bruno. He is being tremendously positive and supportive and a pending visit will finalise what Bruno could be offered in the way of help with his leg using high-tec methods. The estimated minimum cost of saving Bruno's limb and by consequence his life will be three thousand pounds. Further details on what is to be done will be provided after Bruno's consultation. I am desperately needing bully fans to come together and help raise money for Bruno to have his operation and improved mobility and live out the rest of his life free from pain. If Bruno does not have this intervention he will not live to see four years old. I am about to launch a major appeal to try to raise funds for Bruno's life to be saved. Bruno will also feature in a film which is being made by Noel Fitzpatrick. More news will follow. In the meantime photos of Bruno will appear on my website and follow his journey to happiness here. This dog is only three years old. I have been advised without intervention on his limb he will not make four. Work on his leg is extremely urgent as further deterioration may render it undoable. Please help me to help Bruno. Unfortunately Jan needs a minimum of £3,000 for his surgery. I know times are hard for alot of us, but any small ammount you can donate to help this little guy would be much appriciated. Thanks for reading Ju xxx P.S.
