Our dog Roopert was a very happy dog who loved sitting in sinks and the sofa, jumping up high, and belly cuddles until 10 days ago when he was rushed to the vets because he was crying out in pain.
The vets discovered that the pain was because he was born with a narrow urethra and unless he has lifesaving surgery, his kidneys will fail and he will not survive.
Roopert is only 10 months old, and he is an important part of the family. Our son Albert is autistic (frightening experiences) and he forms a strong bong with Roopert. His loss will devastate us. We are desperate to save him.
We have been paying for his care at the hospital with our pet insurance, but that has now reached it's limit and they are refusing to pay anymore.
At the moment, he is in hospital with catheters and tubes coming out of him, laying alongside much older dogs. This surgery would stop the pain he is in, give him many more years to live, and help our son Albert cope with his everyday struggles.
If he were granted the gift of life, he would go onto enjoy lots more time in the sink, cuddles, fridge-jumping and of course Christmas.
Please help us in any way you can, and many thanks in advance for all your kindness.
Emma and Mark, our son Albert, and of course Roopert
