Our wonderful, gentle RockStar came into rescue as an owner surrender. His previous owner purchased him from a pet store, who subsequently secured him from a puppy mill. It was not until his previous owner had x-rays taken that he learned of his severe bi-lateral hip dysplasia and a pelvic deformity…he took very good care of RockStar…then he lost his job. Unfortunately, we see this often and are left with the task of dealing with the aftermath of such careless, inhumane breeding practices. We are faced with three choices: allow RockStar to live as long as possible in pain and discomfort, euthanize him to relieve the pain and save the unsurmountable cost of surgery and rehabilitation (our estimate is $10,000), or attempt to raise the necessary funds to remedy the condition; thereby, giving him a chance of living a life free of pain and despair (something he has never experienced). We have chosen the later because we know first hand that RockStar is SPECIAL. He is most deserving of a happy, pain free life. RockStar deserves to LIVE…he deserves the right to experience the pleasure of a run, the confidence gained by walking upright without falling over, the comfort of jumping on the bed to snuggle with his master, and the delight of satisfying his family with his intelligence and good will. There is little doubt that RockStar’s calling in life is to be a trained therapy dog. He will continue to win the hearts of everyone he meets just as he has won ours. Please consider donating toward RockStar’s medical necessities, no amount or effort is too small. If we spread the plea to 10,000 people and each donate a $1 our very special RockStar will receive the surgery he so desperately needs.

We are also looking for a special foster home in PA.

**RockStar and his good ambassador friends have already earned $300 toward his surgery.
