This may only look like a dog to some people, but this dog has been through so much in the last 4.5 years of his life.
The photo above is of Tzar, he is a 4.5 year old Husky and before my parents adopted him through an amazing charity (SSDR) he was beaten abused and locked in a cuboard.
My parents have had him for the last 2.5 years, and this dog was a godsend for my dad as he had an industrial accident 2 months before they adopted him.
Tzar is so kind natured, loving and nurturing, even after all that he has been through, without Tzar my dad would not be the same person he is today, after his accident my dad fell into depression and Tzar kept him going. They support each other and there is a true bond between them.
Unfortunately Tzar has taken a turn for the worst and been taken ill.
Over a space of 24 hours he has become paralised due to his disc's in his back causing his back legs to stop working.
My parents are doing everything they can to raise funds for Tzar to recive the MRI scans, Operation and medication for him.
The vets have estimated that the cost will be anywhere between £10,000.00 to £20,000.00.
If you can help in any way, whether it be £1.00 or £100.00 every little will help to save the dog that saved my dad.
Once Tzar has been treated any money that we have raised on top of the amount needed will go to the charity that he came from which is Saint Sled Dog Rescue.
Unfortunately Tzar took a turn for the worst on christmas day.
We had been to see a specialist on christmas eve and they informed us that a disk had slipped and severed his spine, this resulted in the lower back being paralised. The specialist then went on to say that while he is in no pain the disc will do more damage and the paralysis will morve up his spine and affect his breathing but they could not tell us an exact time line. So we took Tzar home and made him comfy, thorough out the night his breathing sounded raspy, we took him to the vets on christmas day and decided that the life he would have would not be enjoyable for him, we said our goodbyes and let him run over the rainbow bridge on christmas day.
We are still in need of money to help pay for bills and treatment. if you have already donated we thank you, but please share with friends & families.
