Description: 
In late April, we got a call from a wonderful, loving family telling the plight of a beagle puppy they had. This little beagle, who they named 'Rocky', had a deformed leg. They took him to their vet for x-rays and evaluation. The family just could not afford what it would cost to help this little boy, but they want the best for Rocky so they contacted CBR. Although it was hard for them to relinquish their pet, they selflessly turned him over to us on May 2, knowing he would receive the care he so desperately needs. Rocky is a very smart boy who is already learning to 'sit' after one day at his foster mom, Jane's house! He loves to cuddle and play, but is mischievous like any normal beagle puppy! We are embarking on a fundraising campaign over the next two months to raise enough money to help Rocky regain full use of his leg. We will be reviewing the x-rays with our own veterinary team soon to determine the extent of his needed surgery and rehabilitation. We feel he will probably require an external fixator device (rods, pins, plates) as his bones will need to be fractured and then realigned. Post surgery, he will need constant care and more than likely rehabilitation/physical therapy. This is a big order, but we think he's worth it! We can't do it alone so we're reaching out to our friends and supporters once again for help. Remember, contributions to CBR and/or Rocky's Fund are tax deductible! THANK YOU! After he has had his surgery, Rocky will be available for adoption. Please contact CBR’s Adoption Coordinator, Michelle (Michelle@cascadeRescue.org) and fill out an online adoption application (http://www.cascaderescue.org/adoptapp_west.html) if you are interested in adopting Rocky. His adoption fee is $350
