My Story

07.31.2017

After Donuts first ACL/Luxating Patella surgery, he never made it to physical therapy. He was in so much pain, that he returned to the vet and had to undergo another surgery. We let him rest and recover again...but to no avail! A third and fourth surgery was needed but they all failed. After many months of suffering and in pain, unable to interact with his housemates and run around outside in the yard, (which is one of the things he loves to do)our vet recommended Donut to see a specialist. So again, poor Donut will have to go for a FIFTH (and hopefully final) surgery...so he can get back to the fun little guy he is. After seeing a specialist to get her opinion, our small rescue was hit with an estimate of $2500!
Please help us afford Donut the medical care needed so he will no longer be in pain, increase his quality of life, run, play, and find a forever home that we wish he can finally have. Even the smallest donation is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your help.

Let me tell you a little about Donut! He is such a charming, sweet, little boy! After everything he has been thru in the first year of his life, it is amazing that he has adjusted so well. He plays nicely with the five dogs in my home...from my 17lb. mini Italian Greyhound mix to my 70lb. Boxer boy. He changes his play style for each dog. He and my other foster pup (Sissy)play by pulling on each other's jowls or the scruff of the neck and/or jump, run and "mouth" with each other. Just fun doggie play! My two other female gals "told him" they did not like to play like that and he complies and plays in a different manner with them...rolling on his back, running after them and engaging in "ankle biting" play. He also plays so cute by himself by throwing toys in the air and chasing them. He will also bring you a toy or ball to either throw or play tug. He will catch the toy if you throw it, bring it back and drop it by your feet. Then he backs up and wait for you to throw it again! If you have an ice dispenser on the front of the refrigerator door, every time you use it, he comes running to get one...he loves, loves, loves ice cubes! He will also play with the ice cubes as well by throwing them in the air and eventually chewing them up! He is very smart and very food motivated so he is easy to train. He can "sit" and "down" on command and knows "wait" and "crate". He goes immediately to his crate when told and will sit there to wait for his dinner with the door open. He also knows how to do "touch" and "roll over" I am training "beg" as well as "watch me". He does whine sometimes in the crate but he understands if you tell him "enough" and/or cover him. He does not "counter surf" and has not had any accidents in the house (although I constantly watch him and take him out often) Consistency and commitment is what he needs. Donut will not "mess" when he is in his crate and sleeps at night there without a peep! He has great attributes that I would think any adopter would love to have in a dog! He is such a handsome dog and has had his DNA tested too! Surprise!!! He is a Redbone Coonhound and a Boston Terrier mix! Donut requires a female dog and a fenced yard in his "forever" home. So if you are looking for a great addition to your family ...one that is intelligent, super friendly, loves to play and can keep you laughing, Donut is the one for you! You know, everyone loves a Donut!
