This is Jessie, a 10 month old German Shepherd. Jessie was planning a career in the police force but was recently diagnosed with a genetic bone disorder in her front elbows which is painful at times. The surgery is going to be very expensive and we are helping raise funds to pay for it. Jessie will be looking for a new home after her surgery. Please consider making a donation so she can get the surgery she needs. No amount is too small. Here is what her current family says about this amazing girl.
Hello all. My name is Jessie and I am 10 months old now. I was born in January 2012 and have been living with my wonderful family the last four months. I was part of a municipal police puppy program to see if I had what it took to be a police dog but I was diagnosed with a genetic bone disorder where both my elbow bones have not grown properly. My back and hips are great but I have discomfort in my front legs from this condition.
Since my elbows are this way I can no longer train to be a police dog but with surgery I can live a pain free life for years to come. I will be able to chase balls and frisbees just like I used to before my elbows started to hurt. My family loves me very much but are unable to keep me as their family pet. My training so far only involved basic obedience and my family says I am very obedient.
My family is trying raise the funds required to have my surgery which would remove the bad bone parts in my elbows. The cost of the surgery is approximately $2500 with some after care expenses. My family will look after taking care of me after the surgery until I am ready to go to my new family which hasn’t been confirmed yet.
Please contact Cross Our Paws Rescue if you have questions about my condition or would like to make a donation so I can get the surgery I so need and deserve.
