    Story

    I rescued Dexter in Hanoi Vietnam 5 years ago. I brought him with me back to England where he lives a happy healthy carefree life by the sea.

    Over the last 24 hours our beautiful boy went from happily eating his dinner, going for a walk, to suddenly being unable to use the stairs!? The vet suspected a strain, sent him home with pain killers. 5 hours later he was completely unable to use his hind legs and was dragging them behind him and showing signs of pain.
    Scans show.....

    He must have urgent surgery. The total estimated cost is £3500. We don't expect to raise nearly that much, but need help raising £2000 of that, which again, we don't expect to raise, but we have to try so as he can go ahead with the surgery before his spine deteriorates and worsens, possibly leaving him paralysed and incontinent.

    Dexter is too young and has too happy a life for us to give up on him. He's the happiest dog we know, so full of life and love.

    Any donations, no matter how small, would be more than gratefully received. We can't believe this is happening so fast.

    Thank you so much for any help you can give.

      Dexter's home! Just back from his first visit to the vet since being discharged and was told he's doing better than expected. Which is amazing news! He's undergoing regular physio at home with us, expressing his urine & working on his touch senses. He can just about hold his own weight on his hind legs and is showing great muscle and nerve reflexes. Thank you all so much everyone, Dexter received the treatment he needed and still needs because of your kindness and compassion for him. I will keep you updated. Thank you all again so much❤️❤️❤️
