    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    We bought Leia when she was 8 weeks old, we did everything right. We found a serious breeder, We were so happy to finally get our puppy. We had the best time ever, And everyone just loves her!
    The time flew by, soon she was one year old. That means it's time to x-ray her hips and knees. The knees were fine, they were perfect. But her hips didn't look good, not good at all. She was diagnosed with bad hip dysplasia with arthritis. About two weeks after the result we started to see that she was suffering from her condition. She started to get stiff after running and playing with other dogs. And it just kept getting worse so we got in touch with a specialist, he gave us some painkillers and some anti-inflammatory medication. He told us to start with physical therapy to see if she could get better by building some muscles. It has helped but not like we were hoping for.
    She's still not able to play or run off leash without limping afterwards and it hurts so much to see the pain she is in after doing the one thing she loves the most, run. And for those of you who had a boxer, you know how they are!

    One of her hips has gotten worse, the arthritis is worse and there is not many options left...
    So basically our only option is to do surgery. A total hip replacement. They will put in a prosthetic hip instead of her own on the left side because it's the worst side.

    We were so happy to have a plan, that we actually could help her to get a pain free life! Even though the surgery scares us it's better than the thought of not having her in our life
    We went home with hope and the feeling of relief, we just needed to make one quick call to our insurance company But they will only pay for half of the surgery and they wont cover the aftercare or the checkups afterwards.
    Unfortunately we don't have that kind of money and we can't do the surgery

    We are about £2000 short at the moment and with the cost of medication and the rehab.

    That's why we need your help!
